Items that will be accepted include incandescent, fluorescent, metal halide, mercury vapor, and high pressure sodium lamps. All four and eight foot fluorescent lamps must be placed in their original cartons or a box, closed, and taped shut to secure the materials during transportation. Please write the number of lamps in the cartons on the outside of the box. Please place all other types of lamps in boxes as well.
Batteries (car batteries are not accepted) containing alkaline, nickel cadmium, lead acid, mercury or lithium will be accepted for disposal/recycling. The ends of the alkaline batteries must be taped with electrical tape or they will not be accepted. This is due to federal transportation laws.
Computer components accepted will include CPUs, monitors, printers and keyboards. We will also accept televisions and other electronic items as now required by state law. As of September 1, 2010, most electronic items will not be accepted at landfills or via normal waste disposal pick up. These items must be recycled.
New Holstein Utilities reserves the right to deny acceptance of any product. If you have any questions, please contact the NHU office at 898-5776.
