Safe Transportation Tips

  • Keep products in their original container.
  • Seal containers tightly and arrange upright in a single layer.
  • Transport items in a paper bag, card board box, or plastic tote.
  • Transport items in the trunk, away from children.
  • Never mix chemicals.  Pouring chemicals together can be dangerous and prevents recycling.
  • No empties.  Empty containers can be placed in the trash.

Gas Can Exchange
Starting April 21, exchange your old portable gas can for a new, safer one for FREE at the year-round collection site. Limit one can per household while supplies last. Old gas cans release vapors that pollute our air. Air pollution harms everyone, especially children and people with respiratory issues. The new gas cans are vent-free and have design features that prevent spills. Switching from an old gas can to a new one can reduce air pollution by up to 75 percent. Questions: call 651.633.EASY (3279) - answered 24/7 - or email AskEH.

Product Reuse Center
Drop off unwanted household chemicals like paints, automotive fluids and pesticides, and pick up products you need at our new Reuse Center, located at 5 Empire Drive in St. Paul. Must be 18 or older to take products. Product availability and selection will vary. The center is open during the hours listed above | icon: video Commissioner Rettman Discusses Reuse Center
