CLEVELAND, TN –The City's Stormwater Program is co-sponsoring this year's Household Hazardous Waste Collection Day along with Santek Waste Management, Bradley County Sheriff's Office, Keep Cleveland/Bradley County Beautiful and the Bradley County Stormwater Program at the Bradley County Justice Center located at 2290 Blythe Avenue Cleveland, TN 37311.

Household hazardous wastes are defined as leftover household products that contain corrosive, toxic, ignitable, or reactive ingredients. Products such as paints, cleaners, oils, batteries and pesticides that contain potentially hazardous ingredients require special care when you dispose of them. Improper disposal of household hazardous wastes can include pouring them down the drain, on the ground, into storm sewers, or in some cases putting them out with the trash.
The dangers of such disposal methods might not be immediately obvious, but improper disposal of these wastes can pollute the environment and post a threat to human health.
