Dispose of Hazardous Household Materials Properly

PTABrought to FEN by National PTA®

Containers that are partially full of hazardous materials (household cleaners, motor oil, paints, pesticides) should not be thrown in the trash or poured down the drain. Contact your local government to find out where you can safely dispose of hazardous household waste and/or if there is a hazardous waste collection program in your community. Have your children take part in collecting and participating in annual disposal drives and community recycling programs.
