Tips for transporting household hazardous waste materials:

  1. Containers should be sealed and in their original packing. If not in original packing, mark outside of container with contents, if known.
  2. Pack leaking containers in a larger non-leaking container.
  3. Place containers upright in a box or plastic bin and pack newspaper around them to prevent breakage.
  4. Place materials in your trunk where you will not breathe the fumes during transport.
