Some items RDS cannot responsibly reuse, recycle or dispose, which mean we can’t take everything.
What Cannot Be Brought to RDS
Fluorescent Light Bulbs
Batteries (but we do accept lead car batteries)
To handle any of the above items, contact Whatcom County’s Disposal of Toxics at (360) 380-4640. Or visit their website at: https://www.whatcomcounty.us/Directory.aspx?did=107
See our separate section about how to handle PAINT.
And yes, we do take tires, but just put them in the correct waste area: ask the staff.
