Fluorescent Bulbs
We accept most sizes: 4 foot tubes, corkscrew, U-shaped, and circular, fluorescent bulbs daily at the Regional Landfill. 8 foot bulbs are considered to be a commercial size and are only accepted on our specified hazardous waste collection days. Do to storage limitations and breakage during transport, we do not accept any fluorescent bulbs at our Belman Road facility. Please feel free to check with local home improvement and electronics retailers about bulb recycling opportunities too.

Latex Paint
If the paint is in good condition, consider donating it to Habitat for Humanity. Call the local office at (540) 891-5009.

If you have less than half a can, open the lid and let it dry. If you have more than 1/2 a can, you can add kitty litter, sawdust or a commercial product to help absorb the moisture. Once it is dry, homeowners can place it in your regular trash.

If the paint is oil-based, please save it for the next household hazardous waste day for proper disposal.
