What is Household Hazardous Waste?
Household hazardous waste (HHW) includes products that contain toxic, corrosive, highly reactive or flammable materials. If disposed of improperly, hazardous waste can pollute ground or surface water and pose a threat to wildlife and human health.
Never pour hazardous substances down the drain, on the ground or in the storm drain.
Many household products such as paint, cleaners, oils, batteries and pesticides can contain hazardous ingredients and require special care when you dispose of them.
