What is Household Hazardous Waste?

Paints, pesticides, propane tanks, batteries, syringes, used motor oil and many cleaning products are just some examples of household hazardous wastes, that are used daily by residents. These items contain toxic ingredients and should be used and disposed of with caution. Do not place out for regular garbage pick-up. Do not pour motor oil, paints or solvents down your drain or into sewers. 

Household Hazardous Wastes include items that are:


Poisonous: such as cleaning fluids, pesticides and medicines that can be poisonous or lethal, even in small quantities, to adults, children and pets.


Explosive: such as aerosol containers that may explode if incinerated or stored above 50 degrees Celsius.


Flammable: such as lighter fluid, turpentine and gasoline that can ignite.


Corrosive: such as car battery acid and drain cleaners that will eat away at material and injure skin.
