SAFETY TIPS! (For collection day) 

• Bring products in the original containers—Do not mix products!

• Make sure containers are properly sealed and labeled correctly.

• If the container leaks, pack in larger container and use absorbents, such as cat litter, to soak up leaks.

• If you do not know what it is, mark it “unknown.”

• If possible, place materials in cardboard boxes—boxes with dividers make for good packaging.

• Place materials in areas away from drivers and passengers



Did you know:  It can be unsafe to dispose household hazardous waste in with your everyday garbage.  Many can cause serious injury to employees who pick up your garbage.  Whenever possible avoid  purchasing such items because of the disposal liabilities, costs, and environmental dangers.  If you  must  purchase, buy in quantities for immediate use-only enough for what you need.  Please explore alternative  products that are environmentally friendly / safer.
