Fluorescent light bulbs and tubes, glues and adhesives, cleaning fluids, oil-based paints, paint thinners and stains, lawn and garden chemicals, pool and spa supplies, propane and butane tanks, and automobile fluids are all considered household hazardous waste (HHW), because they contain corrosive, toxic, ignitable, or reactive ingredients.
Improper disposal of HHW can pollute the environment and pose a threat to human health.
Waste Management’s At Your Door Special Collection® is a service we offer to residents to make it easy to properly dispose of potentially hazardous materials. All you have to do is schedule a home collection and we’ll send a kit. Household hazardous waste needs to be separated from regular trash and recycling and then left during normal collection time.
