It is everyone's responsibility to manage these items safely and properly. In an effort to keep your buildings clean, please do the following:
    • If a container has the words "corrosive", "flammable", "combustible" or “toxic/poison” this means that the material is hazardous and must NOT be disposed as regular trash
    • Recycle all batteries and fluorescent light bulbs
    • Always purchase non-mercury thermometers. If you can't tell, a mercury thermometer contains gray liquid
    • Always buy latex paint. If you have leftovers, if the paint is DRY, it can be disposed of in the regular trash. No LIQUID paint can be disposed into regular trash
    • Never buy more than you need. Larger quantities may be cheaper but it you don't use it all then you must dispose of it. Or it accumulates as clutter in your buildings
    • Never dispose of oil-based paints, thinners or motor oil in the regular trash or leave next to the dumpster. It is an environmental crime to leave this material for regular trash pick-up
    • When you hire outside contractors to do work in your buildings, ask them to take any unused materials with them
    • Purchase metal cabinets so that all materials can be housed in one location. If you have oil-based paints, special flammable storage cabinets are required. These are expensive. $500+
    • If you change the oil in your automobile, dispose of the oil at the Hanover Co-Op gas station to be recycled
