Spring Hazmat Disposal

Spring-cleaning can save space in your home, but did you know it could do the same thing for the environment? You can dispose of all paint, thinners, motor oils, kerosene and dangerous cleaning solutions at your local recycling center.  Empty spray paint and solvent cans by inverting them and depressing the button until nothing remains.  Leave cans of paint open until excess paint dries.  Check local hazardous waste pickup schedules for proper disposal.
