Is there a list of items that will and will not be excepted?

Hi Knocked, here is the list I have:

They will be accepting pesticides, household chemicals, oil-based paint, anti-freeze, motor oil, spent gas, and products containing mercury (thermostats, thermometers, fluorescent bulbs, float switches, etc).  They will also accept EMPTY propane tanks.


THEY WILL NOT ACCEPT: Latex-based paints, tires, PCB's, radioactive materials or explosives.

Best, Garry
