How Do I Dispose of Toxic Cleaners and Unused Bath Products?


I'm sure this question has been answered before, but search as I might I cannot seems to plug in the right words. I am gradually changing to all natural products and need to dispose of some of the toxic cleaners and lotions, etc. that I have still sitting around. Any help is greatly appreciated!


Call the agency that collects your garbage and ask them about their household hazardous waste program. They can tell you how and where to bring your toxic materials that need to be disposed of.
