Such chemicals can cause house fires and accidental poisonings. If these chemicals are stored or disposed of improperly, they may seep into our environment and poison our land, air and water. There's still time to schedule an appointment for Household Hazardous Waste Day on Saturday, October 10th. This will be the last hazardous waste collection of the year.
