Sometimes it is hard to know how to dispose of household items that are either broken or no longer needed. It is best to try and find an alternative to the landfill if at all possible, especially since some things such as electronics and batteries pollute if not properly recycled. There are many places that recycle electronics and batteries for free, but sometimes it is hard to know where to bring these items.
Our local solid waste division has a great resource for finding where to dispose of just about everything, maybe your local government has a similar listing. It has listing on where to dispose of construction debris, appliances, household cleaners, etc. If you take a look at this webpage you can see that types of places that take certain items and see if your local store does the same. For example Staples or Office Depot takes dead batteries and old cellphones.
