☣️ A trip to the toxic trash

👫 My wife and I filled a box with hazardous waste and dropped it off at a collection center.

  • Our collection included old cans of paint, a half-full bottle of antifreeze and some old fluorescent light bulbs.

Why it matter: Some items cannot be safely discarded in the regular trash, recycle bin or bulk trash.

🖼️ The big picture: Safe disposal reduces risk for people in your home — that can occur through direct contact or through harmful chemicals that get into the air.

  • Throwing them in the regular trash can pollute the water we drink and the air we breathe.

⚙️ How it works: Examine labels to see if items require special disposal.

  • Look for words like WARNING, CAUTION, DANGER
  • Flammable, Volatile, Toxic, Corrosive, Caustic, Reactive, Poison, Contains Phosphates, Eye Irritant, Harmful if Swallowed, Do Not Mix, Wear Rubber Gloves.
