Labeling of hazardous products
On hazardous products, there are usually one or more pictograms that indicate that the product is corrosive, flammable, toxic or explosive.
We have two objectives in collecting hazardous household waste:

- To give residents an alternative to storing products in their homes that could potentially be dangerous to their health.
