If you see these words on product labels, they’re hazardous to the environment or human health. Don’t throw them in the trash or pour them down the drain! Other materials such as rechargeable batteries, medical sharps and fluorescent bulbs also can’t be placed in the trash.
The regional Household Hazardous Waste Facility in Duluth provides residents with free disposal of unwanted chemicals or other hazardous waste. Visitors may obtain free, usable items at the Product Reuse Center.
Businesses may be eligible for the Clean Shop program, designed to help businesses with small amounts of waste dispose of it in a safe, convenient, and affordable way.
