Many common farm and hazardous products may be classified as hazardous, including: paints, solvents, oils, cleaners, wood preservatives, batteries, adhesives and pesticides. Small amounts often wind up spilled, buried, dumped or flushed onto farm property. Minimizing the amounts of hazardous products in households and on farms, along with practicing proper use and disposal methods, can reduce health risk, financial liability and potential ground and surface water contamination. This assessment allows you to evaluate the environmental soundness of your farm and operational practices relating to your hazardous material storage and handling practices.
