'Green' Tips 
Thinking Green, Being Green!
Hazardous household products are labeled as flammable, toxic, corrosive or reactive. All hazardous products must include one of these words -- "DANGER," "WARNING" or "CAUTION" -- on the label.

Hazardous products contain chemicals that are:

  • Flammable or combustible: can easily be set on fire
  • Explosive or reactive: can detonate or explode through exposure to heat, sudden shock or pressure.
  • Corrosive: can destory and cause burns to the skin and other living tissues.
  • Toxic or poisonous: capable of causing injury or death through ingestion, inhalation, absorption or injection.

A typical home may contain a vast array of household hazardous products used for cleaning, painting, beautifying and disinfecting. Chemical-based household products from a single home may seem insignificant, but when thousands of homes use similar products, the collective impact can become a major problem if Household Hazardous Wastes (HHW) are handled, stored or disposed of improperly.

To avoid the adverse impact of improper HHW disposal on our environment, please take your HHW to a permanent collection facilty in your area.

Check out these links from the Mid-America Regional Council to learn more about HHW:

The health and safety of people and animals, as well as the health of our communities and the environment, are jeopardized when HHW is discarded in household garbage, sinks or storm drains.




Hazardous Waste Collections

Mobile collection events are held throughout the Kansas City area in Missouri and are free to residents of participating communities in the Regional HHW Collection Program.

Got old paint? The Regional Household Hazardous Waste Collection Program offers a safe way to properly dispose of unwanted hazardous wastes and helps to protect public health and safety.  Antifreeze, batteries, oil and paint will be accepted. Because of their hazardous qualities, these items cannot be thrown out with the regular trash.
