Hazardous Waste Found Near the Playground

oilbottle_1228As I was walking the dog the other day, I found this discarded motor oil plastic bottle. Motor oil is considered a hazardous waste. The container was near a creek in our neighborhood where I found mating frogs, eggs and tadpoles last spring. If any oil were left inside the bottle, it would be fatal to the frogs and other wildlife in the creek.

Most municipalities have places to take hazardous household wastes as paint and oil. Please dispose of these properly.
