Minimize chemical use in the home


and on the lawn Many natural and affordable cleaning products are available. Research and investigate online for easy organic lawn care, minimizing or eliminating the use of herbicides and pesti- cides. It’s good for people and for wildlife. Bring chemical items from home, including cleaning supplies, pesticides, old prescription medications (human or pet) and other household chemical waste products to one of SWALCO’s Household Chemical Waste (HCW) collections to be disposed of safely. Events are open to all Illinois residents.
