What are the city guidelines for the disposal of hazardous material?

Give an environmental impact related to disposal of this particular pure substance or mixture.
The city guidelines for the disposal of hazardous materials are to make sure to follow the exact instructions for safe disposal , so that you can dispose materials when they are hazardous to the environment and your habitat.
Do's-


Dont's-
Ontario does have a designated area to put hazardous materials AmNor industries were the materials are transferred to a storage center in Malartic.
When you are ready to dispose of the paint thinner container you must take of the lid of the can, rinse out with a hose, stir an absorbent material like saw dust or cat litter in the paint thinner, and leave the can sitting in a well ventilated area. Wait for the paint thinner to completely dry into clumps,then seal the whole can in a plastic bag before putting it in the trash.
First, you must reuse all the excess paint thinner inside the container, or you can reuse your paint thinner by pouring the paint thinner into a glass jar or container for the next time you use paint thinner. After you clear all the paint thinner you will be left with some colored sludge in the bottom of the container ,the sludge must be disposed into Toronto's hazardous disposing area located in the general recycling area in Toronto Ontario. ( AmNor Industries )


Paint Thinners contain harsh and sometimes very dangerous chemicals like methyl ethyl ketone, acetone, toluene, glycol ethers and other dangerous ingredients. Which can cause you to get sick and harm you very badly. It can also lead to very bad headaches and or migraines .The paint thinner if not disposed properly and ends up in an animals habitat can end in the death of the animal if the animal consumes it. ( keep out of reach of children).
