Terrapure, a specialized waste management company, will be on site to sort, test, and safely dispose of any materials residents bring in. All materials should be in a leak-proof container or bag. Prohibited materials at the event include explosives (ammunition, fireworks, road & marine flares), radioactives, biohazardous materials, and sharps (needles).
