  • Hazardous Chemicals at Home

    Protect your health and environment.

    What we do.

    We develop the Local Hazardous Waste Management Plan for safe management of hazardous waste in Pierce County.

    Most homes have:

    Store or toss them out the safe way!

    Improper use, storage or disposal of chemicals or medicine can harm your family and pollute drinking water, lakes, streams and soil.

    Follow best practices for safe storage.

    Use safe alternatives.

    Consider using less toxic chemicals around your home. Decrease the risk of polluting the environment—and keep you, your family and pets healthy.
