The Home Toxics Reduction Program (HTRP) provides Washtenaw County residents with a disposal option for flammable, poisonous, toxic and corrosive materials. The program seeks to address the environmental and public health effects resulting from improper handling and disposal of home toxics, and is committed to reducing the use of home toxics and keeping citizens informed about the choices and responsibilities associated with purchasing, handling and disposing of toxic substances.
When preparing to buy new products for your home, read the label first to see if it poses a threat. The product may be hazardous if indicator words, such as: WARNING, CAUTION, FLAMMABLE, POISON, DANGER, CORROSIVE, COMBUSTIBLE, TOXIC and/or HAZARDOUS are present somewhere within the labeling.
