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 like Poison, Danger, Warning or Caution on their labels to alert consumers to potential hazards.

Guidelines for HHW

  • Read the label and follow the directions!
  • Pay attention to warning labels and keep toxic substances away from children, pets, water sources and wildlife.
  • Buy only what you need, use it up or give it to someone else to use up.
  • Always dispose of properly and store according to label instructions.
  • Never dump leftovers in the drain or on the ground.
  • Do not ever burn, bury or throw in the trash.
