Household Hazardous Waste is material that, if disposed of incorrectly, can cause environmental damage by contaminating ground and surface waters, threatening human health and wildlife. Disposing of these products in storm drains allows these materials to enter surface waters untreated.

Pouring on the ground leads to potential ground-water (drinking water) contamination. These wastes should not be thrown in the trash; liquid wastes are not allowed in Michigan landfills.

Please use a product completely, give the remainder to neighbors, or take it to the HHW Collection Site during collection hours.
