HOUSEHOLD HAZARDOUS WASTE COLLECTION INFORMATION

It is illegal to dispose of Household Hazardous Waste (HHW) through the automated residential collection program. HHW must be disposed of at a certified hazardous waste collection center.

Household Hazardous Waste includes, but is not limited to:

  • Solvents

ELECTRONIC WASTE AND REFRIGERATOR COLLECTION INFORMATION

Electronic waste (E-waste) includes computer monitors, televisions, cell phones or other electronics. Due to the high amounts of lead and chemicals found in E-waste, they are not allowed into local landfills.

Refrigerators contain Freon and other chemicals which require special handling as well. C&D will collect these items from your curbside as a bulky item pick up. To arrange a curbside pick-up for E-waste or a refrigerator, please contact the office located closest to you. There is an additional charge for this service.

BULKY ITEMS COLLECTION INFORMATION

Items that cannot fit in your automated carts, such as furniture or large appliances, are considered bulky items. A bulky item is an object that can be handled by a two-person crew. Items that require more than two people may be disposed of in a temporary collection dumpster by contacting our office to arrange a delivery. To make arrangements for a bulky item pick-up on your regular waste collection day please contact the office located closest to you. There is an additional charge for this service.
