Domestic garbage, dried water or latex-based paint, aluminum and metal cans, cardboard, office paper, newspaper, magazines, glass, plastic bottles, and jugs. Used motor oil and filters, antifreeze, batteries, electronics that do not contain wood in the structure.
The Center will not accept the following items:
Construction or remodeling scraps including carpeting materials, sheet-rock, boards, roofing materials, appliances (refrigerators, freezers, ice makers, air conditioners), tires, hazardous chemicals or waste, pesticides, or herbicides.
