Transporting household chemicals

hazardous products

When transporting unwanted household chemicals to a designated fire station, remember to make sure all materials are well marked and if possible, in their original containers with secure lids.

Use a plastic tub or tray to hold the containers rather than a cardboard box. This will help prevent contamination of the vehicle or the roadway if the material spills or leaks.

Ensure adequate ventilation is provided when transporting household chemicals inside a vehicle. Enclose the product(s) in a plastic bag to prevent exposure to vapours or fumes.
