Hard to Handle Waste

Welcome to Homewood Disposal’s Hard-to-Handle portal.  We hope this section answers all of your questions about bulk items, appliances, hazardous waste and more. For generations, we have stepped up to be a leader in the communities that we serve.  Our goal is to continue our efforts to be environmentally responsible.  Our state of the art recycle center is just one of the ways we commit to this goal.

We do our best to make disposal and recycling services as convenient as possible.  There are some items that we are unable to take at this time, either due to landfill restrictions or gaps in the recycling marketplace.

Here you will find removal instructions for those “hard to handle items” like carpeting, furniture, appliances and construction debris.  For those items that we cannot accept at this time, including plastic bags, electronics, hazardous material, propane tanks, batteries, etc., we offer alternative removal options.
