Unwanted household products labels as flammable, toxic, corrosive or reactive are household hazardous wastes (HHW). All hazardous products must include a signal word - Danger
- on the label.
Common HHW Products
In order to protect our health and environment, we must know how to properly use, store and dispose of HHW. Though usually safe when used according to label directions, these products can become dangerous when people are unaware, or forget, that they are handling hazardous products.
Hazardous products can cause:
- Severe burns
Improper disposal can lead to ground water contamination in a sanitary landfill or injury to sanitation workers who handle the waste. To avoid the adverse impact of improper disposal on our environment, please take your HHW to a permanent collection facility
serving Blue Springs and surrounding communities.
Regional HHW Collection
The City of Blue Springs is a member community of the MARC Regional HHW Collection Program
and pays a per capita rate per year for residents to safely dispose of HHW. Residents can use the permanent facility in Kansas City or Lee's Summit, and attend the Blue Springs event at no charge.

The 2013 Household Hazard ous Waste event will be at Pink Hill Park on April 20th from 8 a.m. to noon. For more information, click here
