Never pour these products on the ground, driveway, street, or in a storm drain. Improper disposal sends the waste down the street into a storm drain, which leads to our local waterways. Not only is this illegal, but it is harmful to the environment. To report any illegal discharges to the storm drain, call the Stormwater Hotline at 972-205-2180.
