Disposal as a hazardous waste
Take an inventory of the household products in your home that are used for cleaning and those in your workshop or garage, including paint, pesticides, and weed killers. Read the labels, and identify those products that contain hazardous ingredients. Select one product, and look up local regulations for disposing of this product as a hazardous waste. Think about the cost that local municipalities will charge to dispose of it.Identify an alternative product that is not hazardous and that does not require disposal as a hazardous waste. Note the compromises that need to be made for each alternative non-hazardous product you substitute. Summarize your analysis and your decision to make or not to make a substitution to an alternative non-hazardous product.
