Accidental poisonings and fires send hundreds of Snohomish County residents to area emergency rooms. Don't expose your family or the environment to unnecessary risks caused by improperly used or stored hazardous wastes. Many every day products are hazardous. The easiest way to tell if your product is hazardous is to read the label for words such as CAUTION, WARNING, DANGER, FLAMMABLE, COMBUSTIBLE, POISON, or CORROSIVE.
