You Have Selected Explosives

Disposing of explosives in your regular trash is against the law and poses a grave danger to solid waste handlers. If you have explosive materials, including ammunition, do not bring them to a Household Hazardous Waste Drop Off Facility. Call your local law enforcement agency for details on proper handling and disposal.
