I’m not sure of how the rules work in the states, but in Canada (Ontario anyways!) you can take that stuff to the landfill and they dispose of it accordingly – but there is a fee. Some of the fees are based on the weight of what you are getting rid of and some is based on how toxic the item is (car battery, paint cans etc). 

Hope that helps! 🙂

If you are in a hurry to do this, you can always rent storage and put that stuff into storage until you figure it out, just to get it out of your house to sell it. 

Some local places host days to recycle or drop off items.  Look at your local municipality and see if they offer anything like this or if they can direct you to the right location to drop stuff off.

Go to your county’s (not the city’s) website and look up waste services.  They should have some information on what to do with hazardous waste.  I’m outside of city limits too and our county has certain landfills and drop-off centers that can handle hazardous waste.  There may also be private recycling facilities which can handle the waste too, but they would likely be pricier to use than a public landfill.
