What is Household Hazardous Waste?
According to the Salt Lake County Health Department, you don’t have to look far to find products that quickly become household hazardous waste. Household hazardous waste is anything in and around your home that is poisonous, flammable, corrosive or toxic. It is many of your cleaning supplies, yard care chemicals, pesticides, fuels, batteries, paints, used oil and antifreeze. Here is a helpful list of common hazardous materials found in your home.
