With Household Hazardous Waste?

Poisons, solvents, heavy metals, and other toxic products should never be poured down a drain or thrown into the trash. Instead, use up toxic products completely according to the label. These items will only be accepted at the Household Hazardous Waste (HHW) Receiving Facility at 2000 E. Ferry Street (near the I-75 and I-94 freeways).
