Universal & Hazardous Waste

Universal Waste

EMR accepts universal waste (TVs, printers, computers, as well as batteries, fluorescent lamps, mercury thermostats, etc). Drop off day the 2nd Saturday of each month from 9 am – 1 pm. (The truck is right there near the pile of wood, before the collection barn. You don’t need to stop at the window and get weighed.)

  • Rechargeable and button batteries
