  2. That is so cool that they would do a drop off for hazardous waste. We used to flip houses and once we had a condo that turned out to have been used as a meth lab, we cleared out of their fast. Thankfully no one got sick or was hurt, but we did have to call a waste management facility.

  3. If throwing a hazardous waste disposal and recycling event isn't enough, I love how you go the extra mile, by accepting up to four tires and document shredding too.
    Also, thanks for the advice on how to get rid of unwanted medication. I didn't know there were people who still cared about taking care of our planet as much as I do.

  4. Both minimum recycled content mandates and utilization rates increase demand directly by forcing manufacturers to include recycling in their operations. Content mandates specify that a certain percentage of a new product must consist of recycled material. idaho falls landfill

  5. What a timely info, thanks! I have a lot of stuff hanging around my garage and I just don't know how to dispose them properly. I'm not ready to hire hazardous waste disposal companies for the moment.

  6. Nice Info! There are some people who wants to recycle their waste products specially metal and they to earn maximum profit.
