Safe Handling of Toxic Products

Convenient ways you can prevent pollution, and obey the law
Most households and businesses use hazardous materials such as batteries, paint, and pesticides on a regular basis. When we are done using these products, they cannot be put into the trash.
San Francisco features some of the most convenient and accessible toxic product disposal programs in the country. Our partners include a variety of local businesses, manufacturers, and other City departments.
