The Dangers of Improper Disposal

Household hazardous wastes are sometimes disposed of improperly by individuals pouring wastes down the drain, on the ground, into storm sewers, or putting them out with the trash. The dangers of such disposal methods may not be immediately obvious, but certain types of household hazardous waste have the potential to:
  • Cause physical injury to sanitation workers
  • Contaminate septic tanks or wastewater treatment systems if poured down drains or toilets
  • Present hazards to children and pets if left around the house

Move to Reduce & Recycle

One way to reduce the potential concerns associated with household hazardous waste is to reduce the amount and/or toxicity of products purchased and to use only the amount you need. Leftover materials can be shared with neighbors, donated to a business charity or government agency, or given to a household hazardous waste program. Excess pesticide might be offered to a greenhouse or garden center, for example, or surplus paint given to a theater group.

Recycling is an economical and environmentally sound way to handle some types of household hazardous waste, such as used automobile batteries and oil. Auto parts stores and service stations frequently accept used automobile batteries, and 80 percent of these batteries are currently recycled. In addition, hundreds of local governments working with civic organizations and private firms have implemented successful used-oil recycling programs.

Note: The Household Hazardous Waste Collection Facility is open to Shelby County residents only.
