Disposal of Harmful Items

Hazardous Household Waste

To avoid the potential risks associated with household hazardous wastes, it is important that people always monitor the use, storage, and disposal of products with potentially hazardous substances in their homes. Below are some tips for individuals to follow in their own homes:
  • Use and store products containing hazardous substances carefully to prevent any accidents at home. Never store hazardous products in food containers; keep them in their original containers and never remove labels. Corroding containers, however, require special handling. Call your local hazardous materials official or fire department for instructions.
  • When leftovers remain, never mix HHW with other products. Incompatible products might react, ignite, or explode, and contaminated HHW might become unrecyclable. Even empty containers of HHW can pose hazards because of the residual chemicals that might remain.
  • Remember to follow any instructions for use and disposal provided on product labels.
  • Call the City of Turlock Municipal Services Department for instructions on proper use and disposal and to learn about local HHW drop off programs and upcoming collection days.
Certain types of HHW have the potential to cause physical injury to sanitation workers, contaminate septic tanks or wastewater treatment systems if poured down drains or toilets, and present hazards to children and pets if left around the house. The City of Turlock has collection programs for HHW in order to reduce the potential harm posed by these chemicals.
