Herbicides & Pesticides

Fungicides, germicides, herbicides, insecticides, miticides, and rodenticides are all pesticides. Pesticides are designed to kill fungi, germs, weeds/plants, insects, mites, and rodents. Using pesticides may be necessary at times, but in many cases there are alternatives that are often more effective in the long run and less harmful to public health and the environment. If you choose to use a pesticide be aware that a number of pesticides that were once legal to use are now banned or restricted from household use. Some of the pesticides you should NOT use are: Aldrin, Chlordane, Cyanide, DBCP, DDT, Diazinon, Dieldrin, Heptachlor, Kepone, Lindane, Mirex, Silvex, 2,4,5,-T, Toxaphene, Arsenates, Sodium Arsenite, Creosote, and Pentachlorophenol (PCP).

There are many strategies for controlling house pests. These strategies include barriers (to prevent pests from entering a home), traps (to collect pests that have entered a home), biological controls (attracting beneficial predator and parasitic insects) and the use of non-toxic or less toxic alternatives to pesticides.

Tires

Why recycle?

Illegally disposed tires cause an unsightly mess and can lead to fires, pollution and insect breeding problems. Tires are banned from modern landfills since they tend to “migrate” when buried—they just keep popping up!

Types:

  • passenger vehicles
  • trucks (semi-truck/implements only at transfer station)
  • NO solid wheels (lawn mower)

Oil – Used Motor

See Motor Oil

Motor Oil – Bottles Empty

Not Recyclable. Empty motor oil bottles are difficult to recycle because of the oily residue that is left inside the bottle. When plastic bottles are processed they go over a series of conveyor belts. The oil residue gets into the gears and can foul the system.

Proper Disposal

Bottles should be properly drained and discarded in the trash.

Motor Oil – Used

Why recycle?

One gallon of used oil can ruin a million gallons of fresh water; a year’s supply of water for 50 people. Used oil should never be dumped in your yard (such as on blackberry brambles), down a storm drain, or in your garbage can.

How to recycle.

If you plan to haul the oil to a recycling drop-off site yourself, pour the used oil into a container with a secure lid for safe transporting to the drop-off site. Retail shops sell convenient reusable oil containers for this purpose. Never mix oil with other vehicle fluids, such as gasoline, solvents or antifreeze.

Where does it go next?

Since oil only gets dirty and never breaks down, it can be cleaned and reused at refineries or it can be blended and used as an alternative fuel source.
