While much concern about hazardous waste has fallen upon manufacturers, your own household may have a hazardous waste problem. Many pesticides, weed killers, automotive/cleaning products and hobby supplies contain toxic chemicals that become hazardous waste.
If we simply toss these products in the garbage, pour them down the drain, or dump them onto the ground, the result can be pollution to our soil and water.
