The Household Hazardous Waste Program provides an environmentally responsible alternative for disposing of certain wastes.  Proper disposal of household hazardous wastes makes homes safer and reduces health risks. The average home can accumulate as much as 100 pounds of chemical wastes each year from very common household and lawn & garden products such as paint, kitchen and bathroom cleaners, pesticides, weed killers, fertilizers, antifreeze, motor oil, and gasoline.
