Hazardous Materials, Tires & Electronics

Hazardous Materials are ignitable, reactive, toxic, or corrosive. Materials that have these characteristics cannot be disposed of through normal trash collection. They are unsafe for humans, animals, and the environment. Never dispose of hazardous items in the trash, down drains and sewers, or into the environment.
