Waste Management Resources for the Community

Recycling and proper hazardous materials disposal is just as important at home as it is in the work place. Cleaners, mercury thermometers, pesticides, gasoline, oil, batteries, etc. pose a hazard to you and your family as well as to the environment. These materials should always be stored in a secured area, away from food, animals and children. Flammable materials, pesticides, fertilizers, herbicides and paints should be stored outside in a shed or in a metal cabinet in a garage. The following resources will help you properly dispose of recyclables and household hazardous material. Also, please remember that absolutely nothing should be poured down a storm drain. These drains lead directly to creeks and rivers and could poison the environment as well as our drinking water.
