Did you know that it’s illegal to dispose of your used or dead batteries in the garbage? Yeah, neither did I. Good thing I got this head’s up from SF Environment that you can actually put your old batteries into a clear plastic bag (try a Zip-Loc) and then place it on top of your garbage bin on collection day and – voila! – Sunset Scavenger will take care of it for you.
You know that guy on your street that takes his nasty, bedbug-ridden mattress and brokedown furniture and old pizza boxes and just dumps them all over the sidewalk? Yeah – him and others who illegally dump are costing the city and taxpayers over $4 million a year. They can be fined up to $1000 if caught and now you can make some cash if you turn them in.
