Household Toxics Reduction Program
The goal of the Household Toxics Reduction Program is to help people make safer choices with purchasing and the disposal of hazardous and toxic products. Many everyday consumer products can be dangerous when improperly used, stored or thrown away in the trash. Common examples include pesticides, oil-based paint, leftover fuel, mercury-containing items (CFLs, thermometers), household cleaners and automotive chemicals.
If these products have not expired and are considered safe to use per label instructions they can be shared with family, friends or neighbors that have a use for them. When they are no longer wanted they become household hazardous waste (HHW).
