Household Hazardous Waste

Storm sewers in this area flow directly into creeks and rivers. So, pouring waste into a storm sewer or curb inlet is the same as pouring it directly into a neighborhood creek. It doesn't take much waste to harm a creek either. A single quart of used motor oil can pollute up to 250,000 gallons of water. Chemicals are hazardous to the environment when disposed of improperly.
