Household Hazardous Waste: What to do with Cleaners and other Chemicals

Nail polish remover, paint, kerosene, window cleaner… Sometimes we buy cleaners and other chemicals, use them a couple of times, and then retire them to the back of a bathroom cabinet or that dusty shelf in the garage.  So what do you do with that stuff when you want to get those chemicals out of your life or you just have no use for it anymore?  Take it to your local household hazardous waste facility for proper disposal at no charge.
