Household paint, oil, antifreeze and similar products can cause hazards. If simply left inside of a garbage can, there is a chance that the liquid can leak, causing problems for pets and people, including those who have to clean it up.
Your local residential waste collection company is not obligated to pick up tires, batteries, paint and other liquid or sludge waste.
