    I am fortunate that the county where I live has a hazardous waste collection site where things can be taken M-F during business hours. They also send what they call the HazWagon to 4 different locations around the county 1 day a week (each site has a different day) where people can take hazardous items AND compostable materials. It's all free too. I have very much appreciated this service - one of the HazWagon sites is just a few miles from my house and I can combine a trip there with my favorite produce stand and 2 grocery stores where I like to shop, not to mention there's also a recycle station there too. And I also pass a pharmacy on my way back home, so I can combine lots of errands all within a 3-4 mile trip from my house. The HazWagon near me is on Mondays and I brought 6 containers of compostable material (vegetable peels, corn cobs, egg shells, coffee grounds, etc.) there yesterday. And one of the grocery stores is Publix and I can take any plastic bags I have and drop them there - and BONUS! They also take foam egg cartons and meat trays! Most of the grocery stores take the plastic bags, but Publix is the only one in our area that takes the foam egg cartons and meat trays. Since I recycle and compost so much, my trash can is often nearly empty each week. And that's a GOOD thing!
