Household Hazardous Waste (HHW)

Household Hazardous Waste (HHW)

Certain types of Household Hazardous Waste (HHW) have the potential to cause physical injury to sanitation workers, contaminate septic tanks or wastewater treatment systems if poured down drains or toilets, and present hazards to children and pets if left around the house.

Read product labels for disposal directions to reduce the risk of products exploding, igniting, leaking, mixing with other chemicals, or posing other hazards on the way to a disposal facility. Even empty containers of HHW can pose hazards because of the residual chemicals that might remain.

* May require additional preparation or fees. Other options may be available.
