How should I package and transport my HHW?
Materials must be packaged in sturdy, non-leaking containers no larger than 5 gallons. Original containers are recommended. Small leaking containers can be individually placed in ziploc bags. Larger leaking containers should be placed in separate, covered, and non-leaking containers for transport. Five (5) gallon plastic buckets are available at most hardware stores and make good transporting containers.
State regulations limit the transportation of HHW to 15 gallons or 125 pounds per vehicle per visit. Individual containers are limited to 5 gallon capacity.
