What’s on the Hazardous Materials List?

Getting rid of stuff should be easy, but sometimes it comes with restrictions—as with hazardous materials. Knowing what can and cannot be disposed of in the normal trash is important; not just for our environment, but for the safety of those who handle our waste.

Here is a list of materials that are considered hazardous in the county of Fairfax, Virginia:

  • Aerosol cans/spray containing flammable or hazardous materials like hairspray, pesticides or cleaners.
  • Ammonia-based products like drain and bathroom cleaners
  • Chemicals like Muriatic Acid (Hydrochloric Acid) or Ammonium Hydroxide
  • Chemical solvents like acetone and turpentine, if solvents are present in can
  • Charcoal starter
  • Fertilizers containing pesticides or herbicides
  • Fire extinguishers
  • Floor care products
  • Fluorescent bulbs & tubes, unbroken
  • Gasoline or gas and oil mixture
  • Glues, solvent-based
  • Inks and dyes, if in container
  • Mercury-containing products like thermometers or switches
