    What is Hazardous Household Waste?

    hazardHazardous Household Waste (HHW), sometimes called retail hazardous waste or "home generated special materials', is post-consumer waste which qualifies as hazardous waste when discarded. A typical home can contain an array of household hazardous products for cleaning, painting, beautifying, and cleaning around the house, yard, workshop and garage.

    When used, stored and disposed per label directions, most household products like cleaners, beauty products, medicines, auto fluids, paint and lawn care products pose little hazard to people or to the environment. However, improper use, storage and disposal of household hazardous products can potentially harm our families, children, and pets, pollute our neighborhoods and contaminate our ground, water and air.

    These products exhibit many of the same dangerous characteristics as fully regulated hazardous waste due to their potential for reactivity, ignitability, corrosivity, toxicity, or persistence. It includes household chemicals and other substances for which the owner no longer has a use, the products used for home, personal, automotive care, pest control and other purposes. Examples include drain cleaners, oil paint, motor oil, antifreeze, fuel, poisons, pesticides, herbicides and rodenticides, fluorescent lamps, lamp ballasts, smoke detectors, some types of cleaning chemicals, and E-waste (such as televisions, computers, and cell phones). Because of these products potentially hazardous ingredients, special care is required when this types of materials are being disposed of or stored.

    The chemical-based household products from a single home may seem insignificant; but when millions of homes across Los Angeles County use similar products — handling, storing and disposing of them improperly — the combined effect becomes a major problem. Improper disposal of HHW can include pouring them down the drain, on the ground, into storm sewers, or in some cases putting them out with the trash. The dangers of such disposal methods might not be immediately obvious, but improper disposal of these wastes can pollute the environment and pose a threat to human health. All U.S. communities offer options for conveniently and safely managing HHW.

    Remember to read product labels for disposal directions to reduce the risk of products exploding, igniting, leaking, mixing with other chemicals, or posing other hazards on the way to a disposal facility. Even empty containers of Hazardous Household Waste can pose hazards because of the chemical residuals that might remain. We encourage participation in these HHW collection programs rather than discarding the HHW in an improper fashion.

    Improper disposal includes throwing in the trash; flushing down the toilet, sink or drain; or pouring on the ground, in the gutter or storm drain. Illegal dumping carries a minimum fine of $5,000 per day up to $100,000 per day per violation and imprisonment (Section 25189.5 Health & Safety Code).

    Reduce, Reuse, Recycle

    hazardchk Consider reducing your purchase of products that contain
    hazardous ingredients. Learn about the use of alternative
    methods or products—without hazardous ingredients—for
    some common household needs.
    chk Remember to follow any instructions for use and disposal
    provided on product labels.
    chk To avoid the potential risks associated with household
    hazardous wastes, it is important that people always monitor
    the use, storage, and disposal of products with potentially
    hazardous substances in their homes. Below are some tips
    for individuals to follow in their own homes:
    chk Use and store products containing hazardous substances
    carefully to prevent any accidents at home. Never store
    hazardous products in food containers; keep them in their
    riginal containers and never remove labels. Corroding
    containers, however, require special handling.
    chkProper disposal prevents pollution that could endanger
    human health and the environment, conserves energy and
    reduces the need for generating hazardous substances.

    Global Warming

    One of the most vigorously debated topics on Earth is the issue of climate change because of global warming, refering to an unequivocal and continuing rise in the average temperature of Earth's climate system, the National Environmental Satellite, Data, and Information Service (NESDIS) data centers are central to answering some of the most pressing global change questions that remain unresolved.

    The National Climatic Data Center contains the instrumental and paleoclimatic records that can precisely define the nature of climatic fluctuations at time scales of a century and longer. Among the diverse kinds of data platforms whose data contribute to NCDC's resources are: Ships, buoys, weather stations, weather balloons, satellites, radar and many climate proxy records such as tree rings and ice cores. The National Oceanographic Data Center contains the subsurface ocean data which reveal the ways that heat is distributed and redistributed over the planet.

    Knowing how these systems are changing and how they have changed in the past is crucial to understanding how they will change in the future. And, for climate information that extends from hundreds to thousands of years, paleoclimatology data, also available from the National Climatic Data Center, helps to provide longer term perspectives. Climate change is a complex phenomenon and its full-scale impacts are hard to predict far in advance. It is already changing our economy, health and communities in diverse ways. Scientists warn that if we do not aggressively curb climate change now, the results will likely be disastrous.

    Scientific understanding of the cause of global warming has been increasing. In its fourth assessment (AR4 2007) of the relevant scientific literature, the International Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) reported that scientists were more than 90% certain that most of global warming was being caused by increasing concentrations of greenhouse gases produced by human activities. In 2010 that finding was recognized by the national science academies of all major industrialized nations. Affirming these findings in 2013, the IPCC stated that the largest driver of global warming is carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions from fossil fuel combustion, cement production, and land use changes such as deforestation. Its 2013 report states:

    "Human influence has been detected in warming of the atmosphere and the ocean, in changes in the global water cycle, in reductions in snow and ice, in global mean sea level rise, and in changes in some climate extremes. This evidence for human influence has grown since AR4. It is extremely likely (95-100%) that human influence has been the dominant cause of the observed warming since the mid-20th century."

    Carbon dioxide and other global warming pollutants are collecting in the atmosphere like a thickening blanket, trapping the sun's heat and causing the planet to warm up. Although local temperatures fluctuate naturally, over the past 50 years the average global temperature has increased at the fastest rate in recorded history. Scientists say that unless we curb the emissions that cause climate change, average U.S. temperatures could be 3 to 9 degrees higher by the end of the century. The United States Global Change Research Program (which includes the Department of Defense, NASA, National Science Foundation and other government agencies) has said that "global warming is unequivocal and primarily human-induced" and that "climate changes are underway in the United States and are projected to grow."

    Global warming is already causing damage in many parts of the United States. In 2002, Colorado, Arizona and Oregon endured their worst wildfire seasons ever. The same year, drought created severe dust storms in Montana, Colorado and Kansas, and floods caused hundreds of millions of dollars in damage in Texas, Montana and North Dakota. Since the early 1950s, snow accumulation has declined 60 percent and winter seasons have shortened in some areas of the Cascade Range in Oregon and Washington.

    Climate Ciclechk Melting glaciers, early snowmelt and severe droughts will cause more dramatic water shortages in the American West
    chkRising sea levels will lead to coastal flooding on the Eastern seaboard, in Florida, and in other areas, such as the Gulf of Mexico.
    chkWarmer sea surface temperatures will fuel more intense hurricanes in the southeastern Atlantic and Gulf coasts.
    chk Forests, farms and cities will face troublesome new pests and more mosquito-borne diseases.
    chkDisruption of habitats such as coral reefs and alpine meadows could drive many plant and animal species to extinction.
    chk Since 1971, 90% of the warming has occurred in the oceans.
    chk Despite the oceans' dominant role in energy storage, the term "global warming" is also used to refer to increases in average temperature of the air and sea at Earth's surface.
    chk Since the early 20th century, the global air and sea surface temperature has increased about 0.8 °C (1.4 °F), with about two-thirds of the increase occurring since 1980.
    chk Each of the last three decades has been successively warmer at the Earth's surface than any preceding decade since 1850.

    Landfill Waste Reduction

    Reduce, Reuse, Recycle

    Reduce
    The most essential way to reduce waste is to avoid creating it in the first place. Unfortunately, current consumer behavior is trending in the wrong direction. According the the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, each person created 2.7 pounds of waste each day in 1960. Today that number is 4.3 pounds. Some companies, however, are getting more efficient with their product packaging to save resources. Plastic 2-liter soft drink bottles are one example. Manufacturers have reduced the weight of the plastic used in these bottles by 0.6 ounces over the last 30 years.

    While this may seem insignificant, it keeps 250 million pounds of plastic from becoming part of the waste stream. Likewise, consumers can reduce simply by cutting back and making small changes. Cutting back on water and energy use at home is a good place to start. When making a purchase, look for durable products that will last a long time, rather than something that might need to be replaced quickly.

    Reuse
    Reuse refers to several things. It can mean investing in items that can be reused --- for example, using cloth tote bags when you shop instead of asking for plastic bags, or buying reusable food containers, such as a thermal coffee mug or a reusable water bottle.

    It also means looking for ways to repurpose discarded items, especially those that cannot be recycled and will end up sitting in a landfill for centuries. Consider repairing an item rather than throwing it out.

    If you're upgrading an appliance or gadget, see if you can donate the old one to someone who can use it. If a product has served its purpose, look for alternative uses. For example, clean used jars can be used to store leftovers or odds and ends.

    Recycle
    Recycling also keeps usable materials out of the landfill. Objects that might be considered waste are turned back into raw materials that can be used in the manufacture of other items. Recycling consists of three basic steps.

    chkThe first step is collection and processing. Communities handle this in various ways. For example, some may offer curbside recycling, while others may have central drop-off facilities. The recyclables are then sorted, cleaned and turned into marketable raw materials --- for example, paper is turned into pulp and plastics are melted down.

    chk Step two consists of manufacturing the recycled materials into new products.

    chk Step three occurs when consumers purchase recycled products. This completes the recycling loop. As a consumer, you can participate by properly recycling as much waste as possible, and by looking for products that contain recycled content. Often, product manufacturers will tout this as a selling point.
    Recycling allows us to 'reuse' materials many times over to conserve natural
    resources while continuing to create the products we use in our everyday lives.
    It takes much more energy to create new items or products from raw materials.

    Each year, we Americans generate millions of tons of waste in our homes and communities. Part of that enormous amount of waste is generated through the construction, renovation, and demolition of homes. Most people don't realize that waste is linked with global climate change. How? The manufacture, distribution and use of products - as well as management of the resulting waste - all use energy that results in greenhouse gas emissions such as carbon dioxide, and contribute to climate change.

    As a nation, Americans generate more waste than any other nation in the world with 4.5 pounds of municipal solid waste (MSW) per person per day, fifty five percent of which is contributed as residential garbage. The remaining forty five percent of waste in the U.S.'s 'waste stream' comes from manufacturing, retailing, and commercial trade in the U.S. economy.

    Based on proprietary data released to the public, Nevada was named America's "Most Wasteful State" for the years 2005-2010; where each resident threw away over 14 pounds of non-recycled, unreused items, often ending up into landfills and incinerators per day, eight pounds over the national state daily throwaway average. "Wasteful" states Michigan, New Mexico, Wisconsin and Oregon as well as Washington also dominated the list's 5-year period.

    chkReducing and diverting food waste and yard waste reduces methane emissions in landfills. Methane is another, even stronger greenhouse gas.

    chk reusing and recycling wood products can leave more trees standing, allowing forests to continue to store, rather than releasing carbon dioxide.

    chkIn addition, when we recycle our waste, we reduce the amount of materials that need to be manufactured, thereby reducing energy use and, thus, reducing emissions of carbon dioxide, the most common greenhouse gas.

    By committing to reduce, reuse, and recycle at home, and by using more resource-efficient construction/renovation practices and materials, we can reduce our households' and communities' environmental footprint, help with climate change and conserve our natural resources. We must be conscious that our unique home is our Planet Earth and that the three Rs (Reduce, Reuse, Recycle) are good for the earth and us humans too.

    Consciousness raising one person @ a time. Let us all help protect the environment.
    It important that we all do our part to conserve, preserve, and care for our beautiful planet, capable of sustaining a diverse array of living organisms with food, fuel, shelter and more!
