Eco-Sensibility: Clean out Hazardous Waste Before Listing Your Home

A line item for your staging plan: Take advantage of the Household Hazardous Waste Drop-off Program in your county.  Begin to carve out anything under your sink or in your garage that makes your eyes water or emits fumes.  Paint, pesticides, swimming pool chemicals, cleaning solvents, auto products, lead-acid batteries and CFL light bulbs, just to name a few examples.  Most locations will accept your computers, too.  Check out these websites for the greater Philadelpia area and mark your calendars:  www.buckscounty.org/government   www.chestercountyswa.org   www.co.delaware.pa.us/recycle    www.montgomerycountyrecycles.org   http://www.philadelphiastreets.com/hazardous-waste.aspx   http://www.co.berks.pa.us/Dept/SWA/Documents/Hazardous%20Waste/2011%20HHW%20Brochure%20final.pdf
