Your house is clean, but is it safe?

Be smart about using, storing, and disposing household products.

According to the EPA, the average home can have as much as 100 pounds of environmentally harmful products stored in various areas.

Always:
  • Read the label
  • Keep products in original containers & stored safely away from children and pets
  • Dispose of household products safely
  • Try alternative products when available
Never:
  • Pour harmful household products down a sink, toilet, or bathtub drain unless they're made for that purpose
  • Pour products like used oil or bug killer on the ground or into storm drains
  • Store leftover products in food or beverage containers
For more helpful tips, visit the EPA's Household Hazardous Waste page and their household products brochure.

Heat Safety: Check the backseat

Keep your children and pets safe during the summer heat.
  • Never leave your child or pet unattended in a car, even with the windows rolled down.
  • Always make sure all children & pets have left the car. Never leave a sleeping infant in the car.
  • Make sure safety restraints aren't too hot before securing your child.
