Disposal Guidelines for Other Items

Chemical Disposal for Businesses and Government Agencies
Small businesses (including home-based), government agencies and non-profits that generate hazardous waste and/or electronics should not bring waste to any Broward County facility. For information, please call 954-765-4999 or 954-357-8850.

Compact Fluorescent Lamps (CFLs) 
If you accidentally break a fluorescent bulb or tube, safely dispose of it by following EPA guidelines for Cleanup and Disposal of broken CFL's.

Medication Disposal
 
Do not dispose of prescription medications by flushing them down a toilet or drain, as this will contaminate our water system. For information about local medication disposal, visit the Broward Sheriff's Office website.

Sharps (Needle) Disposal
Sharps are considered biohazardous waste and should never be thrown directly into the trash. For information about their safe disposal and a list of sites accepting sharps, visit the Broward County Health Department.

Rechargeable Batteries
Cell phones, remote control toys, laptops and power tools are just a few household items that use rechargeable batteries, which contain cadmium or lithium, both of which are considered toxic heavy metals. It is illegal to dispose of rechargeable batteries in regular trash. Visit Call2Recycle.org  for a list of drop-off sites.

Regular Household Batteries
Common household alkaline batteries no longer contain mercury and are safe to dispose of in your regular garbage.
