Household Hazardous Waste (HHW) Clean Up Challenge

Many of us have HHW in our homes and don’t know how to manage it. Proper and safe disposal of HHW is not only important for our environment, but also for our own health and safety. We participated in the HHW Clean Up Challenge this month and made our community safer! After going through renovations at two houses, there was a lot of leftover materials, including items not collected by the city. We spent about two hours per day for a week to sort out all the materials and then safely dropped them off at a city’s drop-off depot location.
