Hazards & Environmental Considerations
Did you know that many household items cannot be thrown into the trash? Common items such as cleaning products, electronics, batteries, and many more items are considered hazardous waste and are banned from landfills in California.
If these products are put into the landfills, they will eventually contaminate our groundwater. The illegal disposal of hazardous waste is a dangerous threat to the health of our community.
