Per my recent conversations with California regulators, smoke detectors, with Am-241, are exempt items and may be disposed of in the trash.? Manufacturers will not take them back (same with H-3 Exit signs) for free anymore.? You can also hire a broker to dispose of them but at $1500.00 per drum (regardless of how many there are) is a bit steep for me.
