Does anyone know if a small refrigerator would be accepted at this collection event? How about old paint cans? Can anyone tell me how to dispose of these items? Thanks!

Unfortunately, refrigerators and other appliances will not be accepted at this event, nor will paint cans which are considered hazardous material. However, you can vist for a full list of where to dispose of both of these items in Alameda County.

You can post it for free on craigslist and people pick them up and scrap the parts. No work on your part
