Waste Prevention tips

Buy only what you need then use it up.
If you end up with products left over, share them with family, friends and neighbors. Read the labels before you buy. Watch for words like “danger,” “warning,” and “caution.” Follow the directions carefully. Whenever possible, consider using a safer alternative.
Dispose of these items safely—at our Household Hazardous Waste Drop-Off Event!
