Read the label: if it says, “Danger,” “Warning,” “Poison,” or “Caution,” the product contains ingredients that are flammable, poisonous, will burn the skin or eyes, or react violently with other chemicals.

Why the concern?

Contamination of our natural environment is a very real threat through the improper dis- posal of our household hazardous products and medicines. Municipal treatment plants and septic systems are incapable of pro- cessing these chemicals. Landfill disposal poses the same risks, and the result is the eventual contamination of our groundwater.

Proper Management

AVOID DANGER TO CHILDREN AND PETS: Improper storage of hazardous products can lead to accidental poisonings. The most common poisonings are from personal care products, medicine, and cleaning products.

HEALTH AND SAFETY: If hazardous products are disposed of together in the trash, incompatible chemicals may react and produce toxic fumes, explosions, or fires which could cause injury at home, to trash collectors or waste facility workers. When continuously exposed to certain products, adverse short and long term effects on the body including cancer and birth defects.
