Almost every household and business contains products that can potentially cause damage to human health or the environment. Cleaning products, automotive fluids, yard care products and other household chemicals need to be used, stored and disposed safely to protect ourselves and our environment.
When it is time to dispose old or unused chemicals, never throw them in the household trash. Regular landfills are not designed to hold hazardous waste, and chemicals thrown in the household trash can pollute the soil and water. You can bring hazardous waste from your home to the Disposal of Toxics (DoT) Facility for free. Pre-approved small businesses can also bring their hazardous waste for a fee.
For more information, contact the DoT Facility:
