Cleaning Solutions Disposal

I live an rural area and my house is on a septic system. I have looked for some place that I could take my cleaning solutions for proper disposal but was unable to find any organization that could help. I can’t be the only one out there who has this problem. Any suggestions as to what I can do without polluting the environment?

John Brock: When possible, I use biodegradable cleaning products like Simple Green®. For solvents, I decant and reuse them as much as possible. When I do have waste solvents and other hazardous household waste, I take it to the local transfer station where they have proper methods of disposal.

Carol Reed: Your county will probably have the information you seek. The cities and towns in your county are subject to regulation on this issue.
