Household Hazardous Waste

Left over waste from hazardous household products can be found in almost every home. The average family generally has more than 60 hazardous products in their home. Keeping hazardous waste in your home or garage can endanger the health and safety of your family and pets. Putting them in the garbage is or recycling is illegal and puts collectors and laborers at risk. Pouring them down the drain overloads sewage facilities and endangers fish and other animals.

Avoid using hazardous products where possible.
