Household Waste Disposal Solutions
There are many items in our homes that residents do not know how to dispose of correctly.  Some are allowed to be disposed of in regular household garbage and others must be disposed of in a manner that will protect the environment.  

 

You may view the Household Waste Chart which provides additional guidelines for effective  disposal of household waste.
