Why should you check your HHM products and clean your house of unusable, unwanted Household Hazardous Waste?

Certain types of HHW have the potential to cause physical injury to sanitation workers, contaminate septic tanks or wastewater treatment systems if poured down drains or toilets, and present hazards to children and pets if left around the house. Read product labels for disposal directions to reduce the risk of products exploding, igniting, leaking, mixing with other chemicals, or posing other hazards on the way to a disposal facility. Even empty containers of HHW can pose hazards because of the residual chemicals that might remain.

You Can Help Reduce HHW Disposal Costs

In 2015, Missouri River Recycling paid over $20, 000 to dispose of HHW received from residents. Although proper disposal of HHW is important, it is even more important to avoid purchasing hazardous items and substitute them with non-hazardous alternatives.
