Hazardous materials are often found in the basement, garage, shed, workshop or cleaning cabinet. Hazardous products may be labeled with words such as POISON, FLAMMABLE, COMBUSTIBLE,
CORROSIVE, CAUTION, WARNING or DANGER. When disposed of improperly, hazardous materials can compromise the quality of our drinking water, increase algae bloom in local waterways and create health and safety risks for sanitation workers. In addition, hazardous materials left around the house and garage pose an accidental poison risk to children and pets. Materials accepted at this Clean Sweep event include pesticides, herbicides, poisons, lead & oil-based paint, spray paint, solvents, gasoline, household cleaners, degreasers, mercury and pool chemicals.
