REDUCE YOUR USE

Household Hazardous Waste

Products, (such as paints, cleaners, oils, batteries, and pesticides) that contain potentially hazardous ingredients require special care when you dispose of them.  Disposal options include reduction, recycling and lastly disposal.  Proper disposal prevents pollution that could endanger human and environmental health.   

 

Reduce

· Buy products with natural ingredients or better yet make your own non-toxic cleaning solutions.

· Only buy what you will use in a reasonable amount of time.

· Store product according to manufactures directions so it doesn’t get ruined. 

 

Recycle / Disposal

Chemicals, cleaners, oils and other hazardous waste should never be poured down drains (including storm drains), toilets or on the ground.  Federal law allows residents to dispose of hazardous waste in the trash.  However, participation in free hazardous waste collection events is strongly encouraged.  This allows for hazardous materials to be recycled when possible and disposed of safely when recycling isn’t an option.

DKMM Solid Waste District offers two to four special collection events each year where hazardous waste is accepted. Please review the event flyer below or call 419-946-6400 for more information.
