Safe Storage

Tips to safely handle hazardous materials until Tox Away Day

1)

Please stay in your vehicle at all times during the event. This is for the health and safety of our attendees and workers

2)

Do NOT ever combine materials. Even though you may have two bottles of insecticide or cleaner, different brands can utiliza a variety of chemicals. If combined, you could cause a toxic reaction.

3)

Store properly. Never store materials near food, medicine or where children have access to it. This seems obvious, but accidents happen.

4)

Try to only buy what you need, reduce the amount of waste your household generates!
