By definition these materials can be harmful and should never go into your community’s regular trash. The materials listed below have commonly been referred to as household hazardous waste or HHW but are now commonly referred to as home generated special materials.
These materials include:
Automotive products (antifreeze, fluids, motor oil, oil filters, gasoline, polish and wax)
Batteries (home and vehicle)Electronics ( TV, computers, laptops, cell phones, printers, fax machines, MP3 players, DVD/CD/tape players, and more)
