Frequently Asked Questions

Anything considered Hazardous Waste. Here are some examples. Paints: paints, lacquers, and even their cans sometimes contain harmful elements. Mercury and lead are the most common culprits. Motor oils: oils that are used in vehicles and industrial equipment are generally considered to be hazardous.

Paints and Lacquers: are prohibited because they can contain lead or mercury, especially if they were manufactured before the 1990s. Prohibited paints include paint thinners, lacquers, and wood stains.

However, in most municipalities, you can dispose of dry latex paint as long as it's wrapped in a plastic bag. Empty paint cans are also usually accepted.

Asbestos: this is a highly dangerous mineral fiber that was once used to make construction materials more flame-resistant. It was used for ceilings, roofing, flooring, insulation, and more primarily in structures built before the late 1970s.

Batteries: the chemicals, metals, and corrosive materials in batteries can pose a serious threat. This is particularly true for car batteries, which have a lead-acid composition.

Fuels: petroleum and gasoline are highly flammable and for that reason alone, they are banned at landfills. Unusable fuels can be disposed of at a local hazardous waste center.
