Household Hazardous Waste

Once we really start looking around our houses, the amount of hazardous materials we have on site is a real eye-opener.  Oil-based paints and stains, paint thinner, gasoline, charcoal starter fluid, cleaners, waxes, pesticides, fingernail polish remover, and wood preservatives are just a few that most of us have around the house.

Swimming Pool & Spa Cleaning and Maintenance

Despite the fact that we immerse ourselves in it, the water from pools and spas is far from chemically clean.  Nutrients, pH, and chlorine can adversely affect fish and wildlife in waterbodies.  Following these Best Management Practices will ensure the cleanliness of your pool and the environment.

This section deals with the normal yard maintenance activities we all perform at our homes.  Overwatering, overfertilizing, improper herbicide application and improper disposal of trimmings and clippings can all contribute to serious water pollution problems.  Following the Best Management Practices listed below will help alleviate pollutant runoff.  For more information about yard maintenance and gardening, contact your local County Extension Service or the Soil and Water Conservation District by clicking »
