Spring into cleaning with tips from DEQ. We want to help you do the dirty work in a clean way!

It's that time of year when many of us start "spring cleaning." It may be many months before we can actually get rid of stuff due to COVID-19, but keep this in mind: When cleaning out your garage, closet or crawl space, remember you can dispose of your old or unwanted items properly. Important items include household hazardous waste like paint, pesticides, and fertilizers. Also watch for e-waste, green waste, and other materials that require special disposal.

Here are four tips:
1. Take old electronics to an Oregon E-Cycles collection site for free. Learn more at bitly.ws/87GB
2. Take your household hazardous waste to a collection site. Look for one by county at bitly.ws/87GC
3. Learn about managing unwanted medications at bitly.ws/87GC
4. Look for the Safer Choice label when purchasing household cleaning products. These certified products are safer for you, your family, your business, and the environment. Check out EPA's list of certified products at www.epa.gov/saferchoice/products ##SaferChoice
