Household Hazardous Materials

Some leftover household products, such as paints, petroleum-based items, poisons, cleaners, and batteries, can contain hazardous ingredients and require special care when you dispose of them as they can catch fire, react, or explode under certain circumstances. Improper disposal of such items can include pouring them down toilets or sinks, on the ground, into storm drains, or in some cases, putting them out with the regular trash. These improper disposal methods cause environmental hazards by contaminating surface and groundwater and can pose a threat to human health.
