Electronic & Universal Waste

Electronic and universal waste, such as fluorescent tubes and batteries, are prohibited from the trash. These wastes contain a variety of toxic components like lead, cadmium and mercury, arsenic, and flame retardants, and when dumped in a landfill, these materials can contaminate the soil and groundwater, thus impacting surrounding areas.

Examples of electronic waste include: microwaves, TVs, computer monitors and towers, cell phones, iPods, DVD players, stereos, etc.

Examples of universal waste Include: used oil and filters, batteries, fluorescent tubes and bulbs, sharps, etc.


You can schedule a Bulky Pickup to correctly dispose of your electronic waste. This is good for large appliances such as refrigerators or washing machines.

Single-family residents may schedule one free curbside pickup each calendar year.
