Household Hazardous Waste

What is Hazardous Waste?

Hazardous waste is a waste with properties that make it dangerous or capable of having a harmful effect on human health or the environment. 

Household Hazardous Waste includes products typically used in residences, like paint, cleaners, lawn and garden products, automotive fluids, bug sprays, fluorescent lights, and other chemical products. Products labeled as flammable, toxic, corrosive, or reactive are household hazardous wastes. All hazardous products must include a signal word — DANGER, WARNING or CAUTION — on the label.
