Recycling of Chemical Items

--Chemical items was dangerous items if we cant Recycling them. Like a tin of paints, medications, and many more. To keep our ecology system, we must know how to recycling the chemical items like that. In this post, second post, I will explain a little of how to recycling the chemical items.
--here are some general guidelines for some common items:

  • Aerosol cans. Empty cans can be recycled fairly easily through your curbside program or at your local recycling facility. Partially full cans are harder to get rid of. Don't try to empty them yourself, says Earth911. Instead, see if your local recycling or HHW drop-off center will take them. It's also not a good idea to send pressurized cans (empty or not) to a landfill because they can explode if a fire breaks out.

  • Car stuff. Wal-Mart, Autozone, JiffyLube, and others recycle used motor oil. Ask if they'll take your old filters back for recycling too. Return dead car batteries to the store where you are purchasing a new one and ask if they'll recycle it. If not, check with your local HHW center.

  • CFLs. It's important to properly recycle fluorescent bulbs because they contain tiny amounts of mercury. Drop CFLs off at any Home Depot or Ikea for free recycling. Or search Earth911 for other local options.

  • Cleaning products. You can't recycle them, but that doesn't mean you should throw them in the trash or pour them down the drain. Read the label for information on disposal, suggests Darby Hoover at the Natural Resources Defense Council. You'll most likely need to bring old products to a HHW center. The same is true for pesticides and any other chemicals you want to get rid of.

  • Medications. Don't flush them down the toilet or pour them down the drain because tiny amounts of pharmaceuticals are making their way into our streams, rivers, and lakes. Your best bet is to find a program that will take back unused medications. Some suggestions: Check with your local government to see if it's hosting a collection event. Ask if your pharmacy or HHW collection program will accept old prescription drugs. Costco members can bring unwanted medications to one of its pharmacies. Otherwise, read these suggestions on how to safely throw them in the trash.

  • Paint. Do your best to make sure it gets used. Give it to a friend. Use it for primer. Donate it to a charity, such as Habitat for Humanity. If you can't reuse it, then search Earth911 to see if you can recycle it. Otherwise, you might need to throw dried paint in the trash if it's not against the law in your community. Remove the lid from a latex paint can and let it dry out until it's completely hard. Take any oil-based paints directly to your household hazardous waste center.
