You can put most types of trash in the garbage for trash pick up. However recently there are several types of household items that have been banned from normal trash pick up. Some of these items are:

– Household paints (like latex paints)

– Spray paints

– Varnishes and stains (used in wood)

– Household cleaners

– Batteries

– Many electronics (particularly monitors and televisions)

– Motor oils

– Other fluids used for cars (i.e. power steering fluid, transmission fluid etc)

– Glues

– Most spray cans

Do not put these items out for regular trash pick up. If you put them out for regular trash pick up you may face large fines from your city.
