The program is designed to provide area residents with a safe, environmentally sound method of disposal of the many hazardous materials found in the average home.

By bringing such toxins as antifreeze, drain cleaners and pesticides on any of the scheduled S.T.O.P. collection days, each family can make a significant contribution to the protection of the precious groundwater supply and the preservation of the bays and estuaries.

  • Wrap leaking containers in newspaper and place in a plastic bag or larger container.
  • Make sure all caps and lids are tight.
  • Place items securely in a box for transportation.
  • Use newspaper or cardboard to keep items from tipping or hitting each other.
  • Place chemicals which may react with each other in separate areas of the vehicle.
  • Do not leave products in a hot, unventilated vehicle for an extended period of time.
  • Do not smoke near chemical products.
