You Have Selected Contaminated Soils
Items such as poisons, paints, oil, solvents, automotive fluids, cleaners, herbicides and many others must not be dumped into the regular garbage. The best thing to do is buy only what you need and use what you buy. If you have accumulated toxics, click the Contra Costa County Household Hazardous Waste Program link below for information regarding the facility that serves your area.
Items such as poisons, paints, oil, solvents, automotive fluids, cleaners, herbicides and many others must not be dumped into the regular garbage. Water seeps through landfills and toxics end up in the water table. In areas that burn garbage, your toxics may end up in the air you breathe. The best thing to do is use what you buy, buy only what you need.
If you have accumulated toxics, check with your Household Hazardous Waste Program or local recycling agency—almost all areas have household toxics drop-off days or locations.
