Manage hazardous products containers

Empty containers for hazardous products such as household cleaners, automotive fluids, pesticides, and herbicides should be placed in the trash (NOT recyclable). Use all of the product, do not rinse.

If any amount of the original product remains in the container, bring to a Household Hazardous Waste Collection

If you are unsure whether the product is hazardous, visit our What is Hazardous Waste page for examples.
