Household Hazardous Waste

Household hazardous waste is found in each and every home. Most of these items are products that are used for cleaning, controlling insects, improving plants and grass or for various other home improvement and repair projects. The labels on these products often contain words such as flammable, corrosive, reactive and even toxic. Household hazardous waste cannot be disposed of in regular refuse; they must be handled safely and disposed of in a manner that will not result in environmental exposure. It is strongly suggested that consumers take the time to read labels to better understand how to properly dispose household hazardous waste. When using a hazardous material, purchase only the amount needed to complete a job.
