Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)

Question:
We recently had to get a new microwave and now don't know what to do with the old one. Can we recycle it at any of the hazardous waste sites? If not, do you have any suggestions as to what to do with it. It is an over the range micro so it's too big to put in with the regular garbage pick up. Any suggestions would be appreciated.
