Household Hazardous Waste

Household hazardous waste (also called MHSW) does not belong in the garbage or blue box recycling. Some products are identified with hazard symbols, others such as make-up, soaps, prescription medications, vitamins, needles and fluorescent tubes/bulbs are not. All of these items need careful handling to keep our land and water safe and clean.
