What is HHW?
Common household items such as fluorescent bulbs, batteries, gasoline, household chemicals, pesticides, paints, antifreeze and asbestos are all considered HHW. These items can be toxic to you and/or the environment and must be disposed of properly to protect you, the environment and your resource hauler.
