Removal Services

It is prohibited to put hazardous waste in the trash, including oil, chemicals, paints, freon, old batteries and building materials containing asbestos or lead. Some communities require a permit to keep a trash container on the street; others are more casual about it unless neighbors complain. Be sure to ask your disposal company if it will be necessary for you to get a permit in your area.

Also search Craig’s List to find removal services in your area.
