What Are HHMs?
Household Hazardous Materials (HHMs) are found in nearly every home under sinks, stored in basements and on garage shelves.

Proper HHM Purchasing
Changing the way you purchase HHMs can improve your family’s health and safety, reduce harmful impacts on the environment and save you money.

Proper Use & Storage
HHMs such as cleaners, oils and aerosols in your home may be hazardous to your health and the environment if used or stored improperly.

Proper HHM Disposal
Proper disposal protects your family’s health and the environment. Free disposal is provided by facilities across the state called Regional Collection Centers.

Change Our Ways, Change Our World
There are six easy steps you can take to properly manage HHMs and change your world.
