Don’t treat household hazardous waste like garbage.

Household hazardous waste includes corrosive, flammable or poisonous materials like

pesticides, automotive oil, aerosols, prescription medicine, batteries and mercury-

containing items, to name a few.  Putting these materials in your garbage or recycling,

or pouring them down your drain, contaminates water and landfills.
