Transporting household hazardous waste

When transporting items to the HHW collection facility, please take the following precautions:

  • Pack containers in a lined box in case of a spill.
  • If possible, bring items in their original containers, or clearly mark on the container its contents.
  • Do not mix different products together.
  • Tighten all lids before transporting.
  • If container is leaking, pack it in a larger leak-free container, perhaps with cat litter.
  • Place boxes in car trunk.  If you must transport items inside the car, keep the car ventilated and place combustibles out of direct sunlight and away from heat sources.
  • Do not smoke while transporting HHW.
