How to dispose of Household Hazardous Waste
Tuesday, May 29, 2012

Spring is here and it’s the perfect time for a fresh start. This year, green your spring cleaning routine by donating or recycling unwanted items and replacing chemical cleaners with natural products and some good, old-fashioned (non-toxic!) elbow grease.

When getting rid of unwanted household items, sort items to be donated, recycled or brought to a household hazardous waste (HHW) collection event or depot.

To dispose of hazardous waste from your home:
  • MMSB-sponsored collection events taking place this spring
  • HHW permanent depots
  • Eastern Waste Management Mobile Collection Events

Although HHW depots and events let you dispose of hazardous waste in a safe and environmentally-friendly way, it’s best to avoid hazardous materials in the first place. Check out these Smarter Tips for alternatives to hazardous products.
