Discarded Chemical Products
These are ONLY discarded, expired or off-specification chemical products. So, before you decide if this is a waste, ask yourself:
- Is this a product? (e.g., a pesticide purchased to kill rats)
- Is the product still useful? (If it can be used for its intended purpose and you intend to use it, it is not necessarily a waste.)
- If the product is still useful, you may consider the TCEQ RENEW program.
