Discarding of hazardous materials the right way is important. Not only does it help you go green it helps the environment and it keeps your home and community safe and tidy. Further, it keeps harmful toxins out of your family’s way. Still, it is a common question as to what exactly to do with those unwanted hazardous materials you want to discard.
Here are a few tips on what to do with hazardous unwanted materials.
Chemical: Examples of hazardous chemicals are paint thinners or hobbyist chemicals.
Gas: A little-known fact is that those long, fluorescent bulbs used in garages and workspaces contain hazardous gas.
Substance: Common examples of hazardous substances are household paints, especially oil-based or those with lead.
Did you know? Medications are one often overlooked hazardous material. This includes both over-the-counter (OTC) and prescription medicine in the forms of pills, tablets, gel caps, powders or liquids. It’s common to dump them down the toilet or sink but this is harmful to the environment and can damage your family’s water quality and your home’s septic or sewer system.
