Batteries

  • On the curb

    There are some items that Waste Connections will pick up for recycling that can be set on the curb instead of inside Big Blue.  

    Batteries – put household batteries in a sealed, clear plastic bag and place them on the lid of Big Blue.

    Motor Oil and Antifreeze – Place these materials in a clear, one-gallon plastic jug with a screw-top lid (milk jug). Do NOT mix motor oil or antifreeze with each other or with any other material such as water or automotive fluids. Place them on the curb next to the cart.

    Bottles & Jars – Rinse bottles and jars, discard lids. Place them in a bin or 5 gallon bucket next to the cart.
