It would also be good to have a tag for a site accepting household toxic wastes such as used batteries, cleaning chemicals, leftover paint, and the like.  Here in Nashville, Tennessee, USA, such substances are not supposed to included in the regular garbage pickup, or flushed down a drain. Instead, there is a single facility for the whole city, where such toxic products are supposed to be brought by the consumer (given the inconvenience, and the fact that you have to pay a $5.00 per visit "tipping fee", I suspect that most of this ends up in the regular garbage collection anyway).
