How to recycle


Hazardous – no charge

Bring solvents like paint thinner to a household hazardous waste facility:

  • Put solvents in a sealed container that is 5-gallons or less.
  • Limit 50-gallons per trip.

Solvents aren’t allowed in the garbage.

Decrease waste: Choose reusable items or donate to thrift stores.
