What is household hazardous waste?

Also known as HHW, these are hazardous wastes produced from households or businesses that may be potentially dangerous and lethal when mishandled. These types of wastes include:

Can HHW be recycled?

Yes, most common hazardous materials produced from households can be recycled:
Since a standard household or business establishment does not normally produce large amounts of HHW, it becomes a challenge when there is actually a need to dispose of it. Questions about who to call, what to do, how to recycle, and how much it costs to remove these safely from your home become a concern. That’s where we come in.
