Should we be concerned with hazardous waste?
Surprisingly, these common products can pose serious threats to the health of people, animals, and the environment. If not properly disposed of, these products may contaminate the soil, surface water, or underlying ground water. Once contaminated, soil and water are difficult and expensive to clean. Some contaminated water may never be clean enough to be used as drinking water. With a limited community water supply - much of it from ground water - Laramie and Albany County residents must take significant precautions to protect our water supply from household wastes and other potential contaminants.
