If you’re like most people when it comes time to move to a new home, you suddenly realize you’ve got stores of hazardous waste that the moving company won’t transport and you shouldn’t leave for your buyers.
There are several events to dispose of hazardous waste throughout the year. Be proactive and get rid of what you’re not using before you find yourself stuck with chemicals and an already busy moving schedule.
