Household Hazardous Waste Disposal

 

Keep in mind that what “goes on the ground, goes in the Sound.”  What goes in your trash can be harmful too!  When you get ready to discard all of those harmful, toxic household substances, don’t just throw them in the trash can or dump them down the drain, check your local hazardous drop off dates so that disposal is done in a proper fashion.
