  • Tom H

    On the topic of the hazardous waste program. The last time I visited the disposal facility (off of old ox) I was surprised to find they they did not accept regular batteries in the hazardous area and directed me to dispose of as regular trash. Is this the norm?

    • Why do you bother?

      Yes.
