Everyday Harrison County residents unknowingly threaten our environment by throwing out household hazardous waste along with their regular trash or by pouring hazardous waste down their sinks, storm drains or sewers. This improper disposal can destroy our environment by polluting our air, water and soil.

  • Household, marine and car batteries
