Household Hazardous Waste

Most households contain materials that can be hazardous and must be disposed of carefully. Improper disposal can be dangerous to people and the environment. Our landfills, storm drains and sewage treatment plants are not designed to treat chemical wastes. Without special treatment, the chemicals may pose a threat to our own health and environment.
