For your safety and to make the collection of materials more efficient, please review the following:

  • Please keep chemicals in their original containers; place broken or leaky containers in a second container of like material (i.e. glass for corrosives, metal for flammables).
  • If a container has no label and its contents are known, please place a label on the container clearly stating the contents.
  • If the content of container is unknown, place a label on container stating "unknown"
  • DO NOT transport chemicals in the passenger compartment of your vehicle… put them in the trunk.
  • Handle car batteries with damaged cases or missing filler caps with extreme care.
