APPLIANCES & SAVING MONEY
Keep some of that tipping fees cash in your pocket by omitting the following list from your bin. Simply place the appliances in a visible location on level ground as close as possible to the roadway so they don’t tip over. This is very important for CFC-containing appliances. Be mindful not to damage to the pipes that contain the CFC’s. CFC’s are considered ozone depleting substances. The city will remove these appliances within about a week, and if they don’t, the local scrap scavengers are sure to get to them.
*This is posted here as a convenience and subject to change.
Double check with the city here.
If you’re going to put tires in the bin regardless of recommendations, at least place them stacked in the very front of the bin, so when dumped, the landfill personnel can access them relatively safely in order to divert the tires to tire storage area. Bin Here…Bin There has a long standing standard safety policy that we do not “dumpster dive”, nor go rummaging through dumped waste, so if the city charges us additional fees, we then pass those costs on to you. Your cooperation in observing the restrictions are greatly appreciated at all levels of this process. Thank You! ツ
