What is Hazardous Waste?
Any material or substance that is potentially damaging to the environment and harmful to humans and other living organisms is considered a hazardous waste and should never be disposed of curbside.
If disposed of improperly, these products can contaminate our waterways and fragile drinking water supply, damage septic tanks and wastewater systems, and injure sanitation workers.
Martin County residents can bring hazardous waste to the Household Hazardous Waste Disposal Center for FREE disposal.
