Proper Fireworks Disposal Bulletin 
06/28/2011

With the Fourth of July celebrations underway, the City of Fresno’s Solid Waste Management Division would like to remind all residents of the proper disposal of their discharged fireworks.

Although discharged fireworks are primarily made of cardboard and some plastic, they also include chemical residue which contaminates the cardboard. After fireworks are completely cooled by water and ready for disposal, they should be placed in the gray garbage cart, not the blue recycling cart.

The City of Fresno appreciates the outstanding efforts by the community in making us a nationally recognized recycling community. For additional information about the proper disposal of fireworks or to learn more about our recycling programs, please call the Recycling Hotline at 621-1111 or, visit us at www.fresnorecycles.org .
