ACCUMULATED PAINT and CHEMICALS
Residents oftentimes accumulate hazardous chemicals or paint products (e.g. thinners) unknowingly causing toxic runoff by storing these products uncovered outdoors.

During rain events, rainwater often causes these containers to overflow, spilling their contents onto lawns and pavement–and into the street, where it enters the storm drain system.

To properly dispose of these hazardous chemicals, Call the City’s Household Hazardous Waste Collection Program for the next roundup event nearest you.
