Springfield Township reminds residents that household products containing toxic chemicals can be a threat to people and the environment if they are improperly discarded.
Never dispose of hazardous materials in the trash as they may harm sanitation workers or result in a collection vehicle fire. It is unsafe to pour hazardous waste down a sink or storm drain because it pollutes the air, water, and soil.
