At Waste Management, we've teamed up with communities to provide smart, cost-effective ways to safely dispose of hazardous waste

April 23, 2017 – 09:07 am

By definition these materials can be harmful and should never go into your community’s regular trash. The materials listed below have commonly been referred to as household hazardous waste or HHW but are now commonly referred to as home generated special materials.

These materials include:

  • Automotive products (antifreeze, fluids, motor oil, oil filters, gasoline, polish and wax)
  • Batteries (home and vehicle)Electronics ( TV, computers, laptops, cell phones, printers, fax machines, MP3 players, DVD/CD/tape players, and more)
  • Fluorescent light bulbs and compact fluorescent lamps (CFL)
  • Household cleaners ( ammonia, drain cleaner, rust remover, tile/shower cleaner and more)
  • Universal materials( include mercury containing items: thermometers, thermostats)
  • Paint products ( oil-based paint, latex paint, spray paint, caulk, wood preservative, wood stain)
  • Garden chemicals (pesticides, herbicides, fertilizers, insecticides)
  • Sharps (needles and lancets)
  • Swimming Pool Chemicals

In certain communities, some of these materials can be collected at the home. It’s important that residents keep these materials separate from regular trash. It is not recommended to place down a sink or storm drain – it could contaminate groundwater or potentially flow into larger bodies of water.
