What is Hazardous Waste?
Anything that is flammable, corrosive, toxic, poisonous, reactive, or explosive is hazardous and should not be put in your trash. Look for words like "Caution," "Warning" or "Danger" on the label.
Common hazardous waste items around the house include paints and solvents, lawn care chemicals, household cleaning products and automotive products. Products such as batteries, thermometers and fluorescent lights are also hazardous.
