  • Proper container disposal - some residents unnecessarily drop off used, but empty containers.  These items generate more waste during the collection.  Here are a couple of tips for disposing of these materials:
    •  Latex paint - if paint is completely dry and hardened in the can, it is safe to throw away in your regular trash.
    •  Other HHW containers - if container is completely dry and empty, it is safe to throw away in your regular trash
