    As an advanced senior I should not drive the freeways, so how do I get rid of stuff that is not allowed at the saturday collection event?

    Hi John,

    Sorry for not responding to this sooner.

    Usually for offsite collection households are able to drop off hazardous waste twice a year and are required to show proof of residence.

    I will bring up your question when the next hazaradous waste event happens for consideration.
