batteries: automotive*batteries: household**
motor oil (up to 10 quarts per visit)*

transmission fluid (up to 5 quarts per visit)
fluorescent tubes & bulbslatex paint (up to 5 gallons per visit)
mercury thermometers and thermostats (up to 2 per visit)
passenger car tires (up to 4 per visit.

Each household may visit a Special Waste Drop-off Site up to six times per year. To drop off, bring a valid New York State driver’s license and a vehicle registration with NYC address. If arriving without a vehicle, NYC residents can provide a picture ID and proof of residency, such as a utility or telephone bill that contains their name and NYC address. Materials may not be from a business, industrial, fee for service, or profit-making activity.

Hi Nice Blog .In any case of DIY laptop battery the, most important thing to remember is that you should only do the repair yourself if you are confident enough that you can fix the thing yourself. Without the right experience and the right know-how your laptop can end up more broken than when you started

Is this the only solution removing hazardous materials like paints and such? I have had no luck finding any resources to get rid of old painting materials that I have. I don't have a car and driving to the belt parkway isn't an option.
