Many household products contain hazardous substances and are harmful to our environment and aquatic life when disposed in drains, toilets and storm drains.
If you must dispose of products, please contact your city, municipality or county for disposal options. The ultimate solution is to reduce our dependence on these products, use them only when absolutely necessary, choose less toxic alternatives, buy only the quantity that you need, and use them to completion. Discharges to storm drains are not treated and are a major source of pollution in the South Platte River. Here are examples.
- Paints & solvents
- Used motor oil
- Oil filters
- Household & automotive batteries
