To properly store household hazardous waste products over the winter, follow these simple steps:
• Keep products away from hear sources, such as furnaces, as many release dangerous gases if they catch fire
• Do not store products where they can freeze
• Keep products in the original containers, with labels attached
• Do not mix products
• Keep out of the reach of children and pets.
