Hazardous wastes include, but are not limited to, heavy metals, toxic chemicals, oil, gasoline, paints and solvents. Hazardous waste is any waste generated from the use of a product containing a hazardous or toxic material that, if misused or improperly disposed, can release contaminants that are potentially damaging to the environment and harmful to humans and other living organisms.
Waste can pollute water, harm wildlife and threaten your health if not disposed of properly. Public Health helps protect your health and the environment by monitoring landfills and recycling facilities and coordinating the investigation and clean-up of illegal waste sites.
