Proper Contaminant Disposal Is Easy to Do!

Look through your home and garage or shed for the inescapable assortment of cans, bottles and boxes of leftover household cleaners, oil-based paints, stain removal products, and automotive fluids of all sorts. If used in any other way than for what they were intended, they are considered hazardous materials, and could harm our drinking water supply.
