    HOUSEHOLD HAZARDOUS WASTE

    Household hazardous waste (HHW) is products we purchase every day that contain materials that could harm us or the environment if improperly handled. Common products that could be HHW are pesticides, cleaners, paints, stains, personal care, and electronic products. Look for words such as 'warning,' 'caution,' 'flammable,' 'toxic,' 'poison,' etc. on the labels. Many of these products are not used up and are stored in homes, basements and garages across Michigan. By making sure products are used up and used properly or taken to a local HHW collection, you can protect your family and the environment.

     

    You can reduce HHW by:

    • Checking the label before you buy. If you see a cautionary notice, understand that this materiaL will become a household hazardous waste if not used up properly.
    •  
    • Using the product as the manufacturer instructs. Companies are required to test their
    • products to comply with federal regulations. Directions should be followed to get maximum benefit from the products you use without compromising your safety.
    •  
    • Buying only what you need. Surprisingly, some products cost more to dispose than they do to
    • purchase. Using forethought when purchasing these products may save your community the cost of disposing of them as HHW.
    •  
    • Storing products safely. Children, pets, and others may accidentally injure themselves when
    • products are not safely stored. Make sure potential HHW is stored out of harm's way.
