Dear Parents:

As part of our study of groundwater quality, we are discussing management of
household hazardous materials. Nearly everyone uses some type of hazardous
material or product in the home. It is important that students be aware of
potential health and environmental hazards associated with these products.

The unit on household hazardous materials has two themes:

   1. Identification and recognition of household hazardous materials.

   2. Managing these products—to protect family health in the home and to
      protect groundwater quality.

If quantities of household hazardous materials are poured down the drain or onto
the backyard, the materials may reach groundwater or flow into nearby lakes and
streams. Some can damage your home’s plumbing and many can kill essential
bacteria at wastewater treatment plants.

We need your help in completing a home activity. The instructions are printed on
the activity sheet and can be easily followed by the student. We ask your help in
working with the student for safety purposes.

Make sure that all containers of hazardous products are securely closed before
beginning activity sheets. While activity sheets are being completed, stay
with your child. When the sheets have been completed return the hazardous
materials to a safe, child-proof location.

Thank you for your help and cooperation.




                                                                                    8–3

Hazardous materials are chemical substances which can harm, contaminate or kill living organisms.

Hazardous materials are dangerous if they are not carefully handled and managed.
    ◆    If used or stored improperly in the home, chemicals can cause skin irritations, sickness and death.
    ◆    If disposed of improperly (e.g. poured down the sink or on the backyard) some chemicals can contaminate groundwater.
    ◆    With careful management, potential problems can be avoided.


                                                                                                                                    8–5

   Hazardous waste program
        Do not dispose. Keep safely stored until a hazardous
        waste collection is held nearby.



   Dispose with water
        After product has been used, rinse container. Pour rinse water
        down drain that empties into a sanitary sewer with lots of water
        or reuse container according to label directions. Usually
        rinsed containers may be deposited in landfill.
   Recycle
       Bring to a reclamation center or find someone who can
       use it.

   Special Disposal
        Air dry latex paints in a cardboard box. Evaporate and
        solidify. Discard empty containers and cardboard boxes
        after drying.
