What is Household Hazardous Waste?

MERIDIAN TOWNSHIP - Household hazardous waste (HHW) is products we purchase every day that contain materials that could harm us or the environment if improperly handled.

Common products that could be HHW are pesticides, cleaners, paints, stains, personal care, and electronic products. HHW is easily defined when look for words such as 'warning,' 'caution,' 'flammable,' 'toxic,' 'poison,' etc. on the labels.

Many of these products are not used up and are stored in homes, basements and garages across Michigan.

By making sure products are used up and used properly or taken to a local HHW collection, you can protect your family and the environment.
