  1. Household Hazardous Waste

  2. Flammable / Ignitable • wastes can create fires under certain conditions, are spontaneously combustible, or have a flash point less than 60 °C (140 °F) • Examples include waste oils and used solvents • Many of these items indicate "do not store near heat" or "keep in cool, dry place."

  3. gasoline, kerosene, diesel fuel ammunition, matches, and items containing alcohol

  4. Corrosive • Corrosive wastes are acids or bases (pH less than or equal to 2, or greater than or equal to 12.5) that are capable of corroding metal containers, such as storage tanks, drums, and barrels • that the use of many cleansers require gloves to protect the skin from corrosive chemicals • Battery acid is an example

  5. metal cleaners with phosphoric acid; drain cleaners that contain sulfuric acid; spot rust removers with hydrofluoric acid and drain cleaners and oven cleaners containing sodium hydroxide or Iye

  6. Reactive • Reactive materials are those which, during routine management, tend to react spontaneously, to react vigorously with air or water, to be unstable to shock or heat, to generate toxic gases, or to explode • Examples include lithium-sulfur batteries and explosives

  7. Some drain cleaners rely on the reactive process. They may contain sodium bisulfate which, when mixed with water, makes a weak sulfuric acid. Bleach and many scrubbing and dishwashing detergents contain chlorine bleach and if put in contact with ammonia, lye or acids will form a toxic gas

  8. Toxic • harmful or fatal when ingested or absorbed • Examples include containing mercury and lead

  9. Universal Waste • Batteries • a device consisting of one or more electrically connected electrochemical cells which is designed to receive, store, and deliver electric energy • Pesticides • Pesticide means any substance or mixture of substances intended for preventing, destroying, repelling, or mitigating any pest, or intended for use as a plant regulator, defoliant, or desiccant • Mercury-containing equipment • Mercury-containing equipment means a device or part of a device (including thermostats, but excluding batteries and lamps) that contains elemental mercury integral to its function • Bulbs (lamps) • fluorescent light bulbs and other mercury-containing bulbs
