WHAT NOT TO BRING:   Alkaline batteries: Most non-rechargeable batteries (AA, AAA, C, D, and 9-volt) are trash in NH. If in doubt, just bring to collection. Tape 9-volt terminals before disposal. Ammunition and explosives: State Police at 271-3636. Asbestos: Get a licensed asbestos specialist. Asbestos is hazardous to your health—don’t even think about removing it yourself! Automotive batteries: Take to parts store for cash back or your transfer station Empty aerosol cans: Can be recycled with scrap metal. Talk to your town. Fluorescent lights: May be taken at your town facility. Check with your town. Food Co-ops and Home Depot take may take CFLs (spiral bulbs), not tubes. Latex paint: Use kitty litter, sawdust, or shredded paper to dry out latex paint, then throw in your trash. Empty, dry metal cans may be recycled as scrap metal at your recycling facility. If it says “clean up with soap and water,” it’s latex. Medicine: See www.twinstatesafemeds.com for police stations taking meds. Medical sharps: Place in a rigid container (e.g. detergent bottle), seal cap with duct tape, and label container with marker, “Sharps, not for recycling.” Dispose of with regular trash by handing to a waste collector. See www.nh.gov/medsafety. Can drop off at Lebanon Police Station. Propane or helium tanks and fire extinguishers: Propane/helium tanks can be exchanged/refilled at a distributor; or contact town transfer station about empty tanks. Empty fire extinguishers can be recycled (NRRA takes from towns). Used motor oil: Take to town transfer station or a service station for recycling.
