Household Hazardous Waste is defined as substances for household use that are labeled corrosive, flammable, poison or explosive. They are end products of potentially harmful substances you use in your home. Household Hazardous waste includes products with any the following warnings on the label:
DANGER, FLAMMABLE, POISON, TOXIC, CORROSIVE
These types of materials, though useful during their life, can cause serious environmental damage if not disposed of properly. The Municipality of West Grey is obligated to divert hazardous waste from landfills and waterways in an environmentally friendly manner. By disposing of these materials properly; not simply putting them in the regular garbage or pouring them down drains and sewers, we are helping to protect our environment.
