What is household hazardous waste?

  • Danger
  • Warning
  • Caution
  • Poisonous
  • Combustible
  • Corrosive
  • Toxic
  • Flammable

You can also use Recology’s WhatBin tool to look up any item to see if it qualifies as household hazardous waste, or look at a list of common hazardous waste items.
