Reduce hazardous waste
Hazardous waste can potentially harm people's health and pollute the environment. These products normally have a warning on their label.
How to reduce hazardous waste
You can reduce hazardous waste by:
- using a safer alternative to commercial cleaning chemicals (e.g. baking soda, vinegar and borax)
- reducing the use of chemicals in your house and garden
- using environment-friendly products
- disposing of hazardous waste properly.
See Hazardous waste to find out about safe disposal.
