The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) considers some leftover household products that can catch fire, react, or explode under certain circumstances, or that are corrosive or toxic as household hazardous waste (HHW). Products such as paints, cleaners, oils, batteries, and pesticides can contain hazardous ingredients and require special care when you dispose of them. Improper disposal of HHW includes pouring them down the drain, on the ground, into storm sewers, or putting them with your normal household trash.
Household Hazardous Waste Collection Day
Each year we host two Household Hazardous Waste Collection Days for residents to dispose of these materials safely and conveniently.
