Hazardous waste disposal

Hazardous Waste Disposal Program 

Household Hazardous Waste (HHW) includes unwanted household products that contain chemicals or substances that can be harmful to you, your family, your pets, or the environment.

How can HHW be harmful?

  • Cause poisoning or severe burns if swallowed, inhaled or contacts skin
  • React with other chemicals or heat and cause fire or toxic fumes
  • Leak on the ground and contaminate the soil or groundwater
  • Injure waste collectors if HHW is placed in household bins or out for verge collections
  • Pollute the environment if it ends up in a landfill
