2010 Honda Accord Crosstour: Hazardous Waste Dump
July 06, 2010
The long holiday weekend gave me plenty of time to do lots of fun things like clean out the garage. I'd had enough of looking at the old cans of house paint left by the previous owner, and as I've never had much of a taste for Petal Pink walls, every inch of the interior has now finally been repainted to my own Smokey Ash preference.
I found the closest Hazardous Household Waste drop-off in Los Angeles County (conveniently open from 9 a.m. - 3 p.m. on Saturday and Sunday) and loaded all the dusty cans into the back of our 2010 Honda Crosstour.
Worried about sullying the Crosstour's cargo floor, I grabbed a heavy-duty trash bag to put down first. Didn't realize until I popped the rear hatch that the Crosstour already has a nice, deep rubber cargo tray, a $138 option on our long-term test car.
Imagining a potential rainbow of hazardous waste flowing across the Crosstour's immaculate rear mat, I used the trash bag anyway.
