Solid Waste - Household Hazardous Waste

Household hazardous wastes are waste materials that can be harmful to human health and or the environment if used, stored, or thrown away improperly. These wastes are the leftovers from common household products we all have in our homes. To protect our environment, do not dispose of household hazardous waste products in your trash, down your sewers, or on the ground.
