Don't Toss These Items in the Trash

Dispose of hazardous waste properly to keep it from harming people, pets, and the planet.

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.
