  • We accept payment via cash, card, or check
  • You MUST place all items in car trunk or truck bed

*Oversized loads will be subject to additional charges at the discretion of on-site staff.

*ADDITIONAL FEES: $12 per fire extinguisher; $15 per pound of liquid mercury

Please arrive on site 5-10 minutes prior to your registered time slot. All participants with a registered time slot are guaranteed the opportunity to turn over their materials. We will process those who are late when an open spot becomes available.

Tip: To avoid spills and damage to your vehicle, never put leaky containers into your car. If possible, transfer materials to a new container. Preserve the label and place in a zippered plastic bag to keep with replacement container. If you can’t transfer the material, you can isolate the leaky item by placing it in a zippered plastic bag, plastic bucket, etc.
