Household Hazardous Waste Days

Household hazardous wastes (HHW) are the discarded, unused or leftover portion of household products containing chemicals that can cause illness or death to people, plants and animals. These products are often labeled CAUTION, WARNING, CORROSIVE, EXPLOSIVE, FLAMMABLE, POISONOUS or TOXIC. Common household hazardous wastes include aerosols, cleaning solvents, oils, paints, pesticides and batteries.
