UNDERSTANDING THE DANGERS OF HOUSEHOLD HAZARDOUS WASTE
Household hazardous wastes are defined as unused household products that contain corrosive, toxic, ignitable, or reactive ingredients. Products that contain potentiall hazardous ingredients such as paints, cleaners, oils, batteries and pesticides require special care when you dispose of them.
PROTECT THE ENVIRONMENT AND YOUR COMMUNITY
Be a steward to the environment and do not dispose of hazardous waste by pouring them down the drain, on the ground, into storm sewers, or in some cases simply putting them out with the weekly trash. The dangers of such disposal methods might not seem immediate, but these methods of disposal can pollute the environment and pose a threat to human health and the community.
