B-6: Environmental / Sanitation / Toxic Substances

Sanitation services in your community may be a responsibility shared by several government agencies. In the case of recycling or solid waste disposal, these services may even be contracted out to private haulers. Check your local government Website for information on how sanitation services are handled locally. Pay particular attention to local health, environmental, and sanitation departments. Occasionally housing or building agencies are involved in vector control, so you may want to consult these as well. The following Websites may be helpful:
