REDUCE YOUR USE OF CHEMICALS

RESEARCH THE PROBLEM
When faced with a problem that seems to require a hazardous chemical solution, take some time to do a bit of research. Look for a solution that is non-toxic (no warning label) or is less toxic (caution label).

BUY LESS
When you do buy a hazardous product, buy just what you will use up in a reasonable length of time. If you have leftovers you can't use, share them with the neighbors.

AVOID AEROSOLS
Often the propellant is used up before the product is emptied out of the can. Completely empty aerosol containers may go into your regular garbage, but if there is any product remaining in the can it must be treated as hazardous waste.
