Best Options for Recycling, Processing, and Safe Disposal

Small Effort Big ImpactThis Disposal Guide is intended to provide the best options for getting rid of unwanted items. These items are collected and processed in a way that reduces exposure to the environment while re-capturing components that can be reused or recycled.

As an example, refrigerators are collected for an appliance processor to remove the Freon safely, and capture any metals or circuitry of value for recycling.

We encourage you to also consider donations of safe to use items, or attempts to reuse for other purposes.

At the bottom of the page is a list of downloadable documents for printing this information.
