Household Hazardous Waste

Proper Disposal

Household hazardous products can pose serious risks to your family's health and the health of our environment. Bring the unused portions of the hazardous products to one of the household hazardous waste collection days. Be sure to keep products in their original containers and don't mix them. Always keep materials in a safe place away from children, pets, and heat.
