What to do with Household Chemicals Before You Move

1. Identify Products in Advance
Identify materials that may be hazardous and make plans for proper disposal at a collection event.

2. Separate and Share Materials
Organize materials that you'll personally transport to your new home before asking friends, neighbors and/or the new homeowner if they can use any remaining products.

3. Do Not Dump
Never dump household chemicals down the drain, into catch basins or onto the ground -- and do not place in curbside trash.
