Transportation Guidelines:

Transport no more than 15 gallons or 125 pounds of waste per trip

Make sure containers are not leaking and are properly labeled

Keep wastes separated and away from passengers

These products include: household cleaners; deodorizers; personal hygiene products; pesticides; herbicides; insecticides; pet care products; paint products; photographic chemicals; swimming pool chemicals; and automotive products & fluids, fluorescent light bulbs.  Even though a product can be easily purchased at the local store, it can still be harmful to you, your family and the environment. To identify these products, check the container label for words, such as: DANGER, WARNING, CORROSIVE, FLAMMABLE, EXPLOSIVE, OXIDIZER, IRRITANT, HARMFUL, FATAL, POISON.  Your window of opportunity to discard these items is Saturday Sept 7 from 9 am to 12 pm so make plans now to get this important task accomplished!  Take it all to the Tehachapi Landfill 12001 E.
