MATERIALS NOT ACCEPTED: medical waste, asbestos, explosives, compressed gas cylinders, shock sensitive materials, radioactive products, household trash, large quantities of UNKNOWN chemicals, ammunition, or gunpowder. Household cooking grease can be disposed of by placing in a sealed container and placed in your wheeled container.

BUSINESS chemical waste can be disposed of at a VPPSA scheduled collection site, FOR A FEE, but the business MUST contact VPPSA first at 259-9850 for details PRIOR to bringing any material to a collection site.
