Some items you need to dispose of can’t be accepted by Homewood Disposal for various reasons, such as landfill restrictions.
Currently, these “hard to handle items” cannot be accepted, including: plastic bags, electronics, hazardous material, propane tanks and batteries. We do offer alternative removal options for these items.
