Household Hazardous Waste Disposal

Hazardous products present two types of danger: acute and chronic.
  • Acute effects are immediate and characterized by severe symptoms with a sudden reaction.
  • Chronic effects are gradual and occur through repeated exposure over an extended period of time.
To avoid these scenarios, the best thing to do with a leftover product is to use it according to label directions or find someone that will use it.

Some household hazardous substances can be recycled including batteries, used motor oil, and antifreeze.

Proper disposal for many household hazardous substances is utilizing a Household Hazardous Waste Collection Facility.
