What is E-Waste?

Just about anything that runs on electricity (working or not) such as:  computers, televisions, microwaves, washers, dryers, flat panel monitors, refrigerators, freezers, broken exercise equipment, etc.

There is a $20 charge for anything with freon (i.e., refrigerators, A/C units, freezers, etc.)

What is Scrap Metal?

Just about anything made of metal such as: bicycles, wire hangers, lawn mowers, water heaters, broken cars, weights, golf clubs, old metal tools, angle iron, barbed wire, old wire fencing, motors, engines, car parts, etc.
