Hazardous Waste Warning

Wastes in this section are dangerous to you and the environment. Handle them carefully and dispose of them properly.

Legally, households may not transport more than 15 gallons of wet or 125 pounds of dry hazardous materials. Read about the regulation.

Treated Wood

Treated wood, commonly used in fence posts, decking, and landscaping projects, contains chemicals to protect the wood from insects and fungal decay. Among these chemicals are arsenic, chromium, copper, and creosote. While they do a great job preserving the wood, the chemicals are anything but great if they end up in our environment.

The facilities listed below will properly manage your treated wood. Give them a call ahead of time to learn about any special instructions.
