Hazardous Waste Disposal

Category: Community Last Updated: Tuesday, 06 January 2015

Household hazardous wastes are products in the home that contain chemicals or have other dangerous elements that can harm human health or the environment. Chemical products often have words on the label such as "caution," "danger" and "keep out of reach of children." Please read the label regarding disposal requirements. Containers that have product still in them should never be placed in the trash.
