Handling and disposing of household hazardous waste:
Once you purchase a hazardous product, you are responsible for handling and disposing of it properly:
- Old paint can be mixed with cat litter or sawdust and left to dry. Once dry, it can be put in the garbage. Be sure no liquid is left because liquid is not allowed in a landfill.
- If you are unsure about what to do with a product, Don't put it down the drain. Hazardous wastes can be a danger in the sewer lines, to the workers who service the sewer system, to your neighbors, and to the waste water treatment plant.
