Before you throw that tube of grout or can of paint in the trash, check to see if it’s household hazardous waste. Products considered household hazardous waste are illegal to dispose of in the trash or down household and storm drains. Many of these potentially hazardous products can be found in your home and they consist of chemical compounds that can poison, corrode, explode, or ignite when handled improperly. Knowing how and where to dispose of these substances properly helps to protect human and environmental health.
