Item Specific Disposal Guide

In order to provide environmentally responsible disposal services, RASWC must pay fees to licensed disposal contractors to discard of many types of waste. Unfortunately, these costs are not easily absorbed and at least a portion must be passed on to area residents.

The items listed at the right should be brought to the RASWC Office for proper disposal. We make every effort to keep fees as low as possible. For more information or questions, contact us.
