What is household hazardous waste?
Most of us generate household hazardous waste everyday. Items as common as cleaning solvents, paint, batteries, automotive oil, and antifreeze can become hazardous waste. If you read the labels of these and other similar items, you will discover that most have special disposal instructions or are not allowed in a landfill. Because these items are potentially hazardous, they cannot be placed in your garbage can or waste container.
