Protect your home and our environment by properly disposing of old or unwanted household chemicals.  Products containing lead, petroleum products, pesticides, herbicides, and acids should NOT be poured on the ground, down the drain, or placed in household trash. The HRMC Household Hazardous Waste (HHW) collection program accepts a wide range of unwanted household products with labels that indicate that special handling is required.  Examples of common warnings include “caustic, toxic, corrosive, poison, flammable, warning, danger, caution and keep out of reach of children and pets.”
