The following materials can be disposed of on your own:
Flush down drain: Flush down the drain with plenty of water; rinse and throw empty container away in trash container.
Sprays: Place absorbent material in a plastic bag, spray until can is empty, being careful not to inhale the fumes; leave can in bag, then tie and throw bag away in trash container.
Trash can: Close container securely to prevent spillage, then throw away. Wrap light bulbs in newspaper before disposal.
Absorb and trash: Pour liquid into a plastic bag with absorbent material, such as shredded newspaper, old rags, or sawdust. Once liquid is absorbed, seal the bag, then throw away in trash can. An oil change box provides the same results. Paints can be hardened or absorbed in the can, then thrown away.
