Nice tips, this should be implemented well to help in the climate change.
We've got a similar thing here, though ours is open two days a week and is connected to the county transfer station, basically a local dump site for everyone to use and they shred, compact, separate then truck it to recyclers and the main landfill outside the city limits.Also check your county. Our county has free residential Haz Waste drop off days 4 times a year. I've dropped off acetone, oil paints, old aerosol cans, asbestos, acids and pickling agents. Also check locally for electronics recyclers. An old PC tower is loaded with heavy metals that don't belong in a landfill.
I agree. Around here, it isn't as difficult as in Cali. Some waste facilities will take asbestos the same as any other material - $80 a ton, but there is a special drop off area.My sense is that many small contractors have an exaggerated sense of the cost and difficulty of following the law in this area.
