Household Hazardous Waste

What is HHW?

Household hazardous waste (HHW) is a term that describes​ waste from the wide variety of chemical cleaners, pesticides, fertilizers, paints, auto fluids, and other toxic materials used in and around the home. The proper disposal of HHW is critical ​given the nearly universal use of these products, and their potential to cause harm to the environment if disposed of improperly.
