Safe Fireworks Disposal
Not only do fireworks need to be handled safely when setting them off, they also need to be disposed of safely. Please keep these guidelines in mind before bringing fireworks to the landfill:
Fireworks must be USED, and out cold.
Please wet them, bag them, and declare them at the scale house, so Agency staff are aware of their presence.
Place them in the residential dumpster as directed by the gate attendant.
