Many products used in daily home and business activities are considered hazardous and MUST be contained and disposed of legally. Examples include:

  • used crankcase oil, AC coolants, and engine fluids
  • solvents and pool chemicals
  • batteries and electronic hardware
  • paper and plastic packaging
  • herbicides, pesticides, and fertilizers
  • medicines and medical packaging

 

Federal and Florida laws require people to pay for clean up hazardous materials if improperly stored or disposed of. The websites http://www.dep.state.fl.us/ and http://www.dep.state.fl.us/ contain guidelines and contact information regarding proper disposal.
