Household Hazardous Waste – e.g. propane tanks, oil-based paints, rechargeable batteries
Anything labeled with words like “danger,” “flammable, “combustible,” “toxic,” “poison,” etc., shouldn’t be recycled, nor should it be placed in the regular trash. These materials are dangerous when handled improperly, and can put our workers and the environment at serious risk. RIRRC does run a special, free program for collecting Household Hazardous Waste from Rhode Island residents – The Eco-Depot. To find out more and make an appointment visit: www.rirrc.org/ecodepot.
