Notes: Don’t  let your house stay SCARY cluttered. Remove that junk and bring it to our Transfer Station Facility for disposal.  The bats in your attic will appreciate the extra room, and Dracula needs more space for his coffin in the garage.  For more information go to our Transfer Station Facility page by using the link at the top left of the page.
