Kansas Residents

Tips

  • Read labels carefully. Avoid buying products labled danger, warning, caution, flammable, explosive, corrosive, caustic, toxic or poison.
  • Buy only what you need for the job at hand. Calculate how much paint you need.
  • Properly store and organize products to increase safety, maintain product integrity, and avoid buying what you already have.
  • Share what you can't use or don't need with a friend or neighbor.
  • Recycle what can be recycled in your area, such as motor oil and automotive batteries.
  • Use safer products whenever possible. To get started, visit Safe Alternatives.

What is HHW?

Household hazardous waste (HHW) is hazardous waste generated by residents at their home. It includes items such as:

  • Paint
  • Cleaners
  • Lawn and garden products
  • Automotive fluids
  • Bug sprays
  • Fluorescent light bulbs

These flammable, toxic, corrosive or reactive items are labeled with DANGER, WARNING or CAUTION.
