Household Hazardous Waste

HARD TO RECYCLE AND HAZARDOUS WASTE

Some items are hard to recycle because they are constructed with mixed or hazardous materials. Zero Waste infrastructure includes a “Center for Hard to Recycle Materials” (CHARM) to collect non-standard recyclable materials for processing.

There are federal and state regulations for disposal of hazardous wastes that could be harmful to human health or the environment.
