What are hazardous materials?
Hazardous materials encompass a wide variety of materials and products. Used batteries, motor oil, paint, paint thinner, gasoline, and lubricants are just a few of the household chemicals that can destroy the environment if they are not disposed of properly. Some guidelines even classify soapy water as a hazardous material because of the environmental impacts it can have on water bodies.
