YOUR USE OF CHEMICALS
When faced with a problem that seems to require a hazardous chemical
solution, take some time to do a bit of research. Look for a solution
that is non-toxic (no warning label) or is less toxic (caution label).
When you do buy a hazardous product, buy just what you will use up in
a reasonable length of time. If you have leftovers you can't use, share
them with the neighbors.
Often the propellant is used up before the product
is emptied out of the can. Completely empty aerosol containers may go
into your regular garbage, but if there is any product remaining
in the can it must be treated as hazardous waste.
