Every day, people dump hazardous waste down their drains, into their trash, or onto the ground. These toxins eventually make their way into our drinking water.  Providing options for responsible hazardous waste disposal is critical to keeping our drinking water safe. – UVLSRPC, Household Hazardous Waste Collection Project
