Household Chemical Wastes are waste products produced in our homes that are hazardous in nature, but are not regulated as hazardous waste under federal and state laws. They are typically left over products that are no longer usable, leftover, or unwanted. You can identify a product as hazardous by words such as CAUTION, WARNING, POISON, or FLAMMABLE on the label.
Each person in Pennsylvania produces an average of four pounds of chemical waste each year for a total of about 25,000 tons/yr. statewide. If carelessly managed, these consumer waste products can create environmental and public health hazards.
