What are you allowed to recycle in Davis? A very helpful website, www.davisrecycling.org, will guide you. The “Recyclopedia” tab is particularly enlightening, letting would-be recycling warriors see where to recycle and/or donate everything from bed linens to clothes hangers, and pesticide containers to water heaters. Recylopedia rocks for reducing, reusing and recycling!

As for hazardous waste, here’s a refresher from www.davisrecycling.org.

Products that may pose a hazard to human health or the environment are known as hazardous waste. Common items may be hazardous because they exhibit one or more of the following properties:

* Toxic: Poisonous when ingested, inhaled or touched (such as rat poison or bleach)
* Flammable: Easy to ignite (such as lighter fluid and paint removers)
* Corrosive: Eats away materials and living tissue by chemical action (such as oven cleaner)
* Reactive: Creates an explosion or generates deadly vapors (such as bleach mixed with ammonia)

The following are some examples of hazardous waste: aerosol cans (full or partially full), acids, antifreeze, brake/transmission fluid, floor and furniture cleaners, gasoline and other flammables, herbicides, household cleaners, paint (oil and latex), pesticides, poisons, pool chemicals, propane canisters (both empty and full), solvents and used motor oil. TVs, computer monitors, fluorescent bulbs and tubes, batteries, and other mercury-containing devices are considered universal waste and also are illegal to throw away in the trash.

If you have hazardous waste to dispose of, residents of Yolo County can bring their hazardous waste at the Yolo County Central Landfill every Friday and Saturday from 7:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. This is free to residents.

Keep in mind these other items that cannot be thrown away in the trash:
Used tires — When buying new tires, most dealers will take back your old tires. Used tires can be taken to the Yolo County Central Landfill. A fee may apply.

Car batteries — Automotive batteries can be recycled for free on a daily basis at the Yolo County Central Landfill. State law requires stores to accept your old battery upon the purchase of a new battery.

Used syringes and other sharps — It is illegal to dispose of home-generated sharps waste in the trash or recycling containers. Home-generated sharps waste includes hypodermic needles, pen needles, intravenous needles, lancets, and other devices that are used to penetrate the skin for the delivery of medications derived from a household, including a multifamily residence or household.
