Household Hazardous Materials
Household hazardous materials are products that can be found in every home. They are either flammable, reactive, toxic or corrosive and pose a threat to the health and safety of people and the environment if improperly handled.
To properly dispose of HHMs, deposit them at a certified Regional Collection Center such as the Dickinson Recycling Center.
