Before transporting waste to the collection event or facility, please use this checklist to make sure you have done the following:

  • Are any of the containers leaking? (If they are, place them in a container or material that will not allow the leak to spread and place securely in the vehicle for safe transport.)
  • Is the waste in its original container or is it properly labeled as to the contents? (The contents of the container must be the same as stated on the label. If not, cover up the label and write the name of its content.)
  • Have I offered good, usable products I can’t use to my neighbor, family or friends?
  • Are the items placed in a sturdy container, such as cardboard or wooden box, for transporting? (Wrap glass bottles in newspaper to prevent breakage.)
  • Does the amount of waste I want to transport exceed 15 gallons or 125 pounds? Each load must not exceed up to 15 gallons or 125 pounds (per trip) 
  • Is the box placed in the trunk of your car or in the bed of your pickup truck and secured to prevent movement? (Keep items away from passengers.)
  • Have I used up every product to the fullest extent possible?
