Options for these materials are to have your contractor dispose of such materials, you may take them to the landfill for disposal for a minimal fee, or request for special pick-up by City crews for an additional charge.

Ashes Disposal: To dispose of ashes from a fireplace or wood stove, soak ashes in water to extinguish any live embers and then securely tie in a plastic bag before placing in the garbage cart.

Paint: To dispose of paint, use a bulking agent to solidify the paint, such as kitty litter or saw dust. The other option is to pour paint onto a newspaper and let it dry. Leave the lid off the paint can and dispose of it in your household garbage.
