The improper disposal of hazardous waste creates a very real threat to individuals and the environment. Disposing of incompatible household chemicals in the trash can cause hazardous fumes that can injure your family or your local trash collector. Plus, it is illegal to discard hazardous waste in the regular trash! Leftover household products that contain corrosive, toxic, ignitable, or reactive ingredients are considered to be household hazardous waste. Products, such as paints, batteries, cleaners, oils, pesticides, and even nail polish that contain potentially hazardous ingredients require special care when you dispose of them.
