When purchasing fire extinguishers, buy the best quality extinguisher you can find. Extinguishers with metal tops can be recharged, last forever & are cheaper in the long run than disposable, plastic varieties.
Fire extinguishers with metal tops can be recharged & should be tested every 5 or 6 years. Check the Yellow Pages under Fire Protection Equipment for service providers. Most service providers will accept old metal-topped extinguishers for recycling. Very old (glass) fire extinguishers must be disposed of as a hazardous waste. Do NOT throw in the trash or touch their contents.
Please place large bulky items out separate from other products for collection and have out by 7 a.m. Large items may include: washers, dryers, freezers, refrigerators, air conditioners, hot water tanks, stoves, microwaves, couches, chairs, tables, dressers and other large items.
FYI: Please remove the doors and racks from refrigerators and freezers prior to setting out for collection. Also, it is the contractor's responsibility to make sure Freon is extracted according to current environmental standards.
