In the state of Florida, nickel-cadmium (Ni-Cd) or small sealed lead acid rechargeable batteries are banned from landfills. Also banned are products containing such rechargeable batteries, appliances and tires.
Appliances are defined as white goods and include refrigerators, ranges, washers, water heaters, freezers, and other similar domestic and commercial large appliances.
Florida overturned its ban on yard waste after 20 years. Landfills with active gas-collection systems are permitted to accept yard waste for disposal.
