Many of the products that we use in our homes or at work contain potentially hazardous ingredients and require special care to dispose. It is illegal to dispose of hazardous waste products in the garbage, down storm drains, or onto the ground.
Monthly drop-off events are held in Sunnyvale for businesses and residents.
