From time to time, everyone has a special waste problem. Disposing of things that just don't belong in the landfill can be a problem. What do you do with things like antifreeze? batteries? compact flourescent bulbs? computers and electronics? household hazardous waste? paint?

Unfortunately, outlets for these materials are not always readily available. The SWMB has assembled listings of the best available disposal sources for these materials that we can locate.
