Read time: 6 minutes

If the waste collection dumpster does not contain cannabis, it is not subject to the cannabis security measures. Cannabis is required to be disposed of in accordance with Section 21a-421j-3 of the department’s policies and procedures. Any resulting remains after disposal may be collected in a dumpster and will not be considered to be cannabis because it will have been rendered non-recoverable.
