In addition, the collection will accept stereo equipment, game consoles, wires and cords, car batteries, kitchen appliances and electronics, lamps and Christmas lights.

It will not accept Freon units, light bulbs and PCB lighting, smoke and carbon monoxide detectors, alkaline batteries, household hazardous waste and electronics that have been exposed to radiation.
