Household Hazardous Waste

bucket of brushes

Many items we use for general cleaning, home maintenance, gardening and automobile care can be dangerous if poured down our drains. These items contain toxic ingredients and should be used and disposed of with caution. Please do not pour any of these unused items down the drain or sewer, where they can enter source waters and be harmful for underwater vegetation and aquatic life. Please check with your municipality on the process for proper disposal of these items.
