What is a Household Hazardous Waste? A receptacle that contains or once held toxic chemicals and is capable of contaminating soil, surface water, and ground water is considered a hazardous waste.  Chemicals labeled flammable, toxic, explosive, and poisonous are especially hazardous if they are improperly stored, accumulate in one place or site, dumped in a storm drain, or emptied into a sewer.

Did you know that each person in the United States produces an average of eleven pounds of hazardous waste per year? That’s 1.6 million tons!

Always try to use up the entire hazardous product, and opt for safe alternatives in the future.

Acids, aerosols, ammonia-based cleaners, bug spray, Drain-O, fertilizer, flammable liquids, gasoline, herbicides, lye, mothballs, oxidizers, paints, pesticides, poisons, solvents.
