Household Hazardous Waste

We all have hazardous waste lurking in our homes-oven cleaner, window cleaner, flea collars, pool chemicals, nail polish remover, oil based paint in rusty old paint cans. Anything that has a skull and crossbones on the label, or the words "poison", "hazardous", "danger", or cautions you to properly ventilate the area while cleaning, is household hazardous waste and must be not be thrown away with your trash.
