What is Household Hazardous Waste (HHW)
It is any substance that is toxic, flammable, corrosive, reactive, infectious or radioactive. Almost all products that are considered HHW will carry signal words on their labels to alert consumers to potential hazards. The signal word used indicates the level of toxicity of the product.
Poison – contents are highly toxic and potentially deadly at low doses.
Danger – corrosive contents can cause irreversible eye damage or severe skin injury.
Warning – contents are moderately toxic or can cause moderate eye or skin irritation.
Caution – contents are slightly toxic or may cause slight eye or skin irritation
