Some of the products you use at home are potentially hazardous.

Safe handling and proper disposal of these materials will protect you, your family and our environment.

The Department of Environmental Services (ENV) provides this service for the proper disposal of residential household hazardous waste (HHW) products.

Further, on their webpage they provide tips for minimizing their use in the future.

The Waste Prevention Tips is a most helpful and valuable section.

You can avoid having to dispose of hazardous products if you buy only what you need and use it all, and whenever possible, use nonhazardous alternative products.

Commercial businesses and industrial operations must comply with City, state and federal regulations for disposing of their hazardous waste.
