Hazardous Waste Point of Sale Notification Law is intended to encourage proper use, storage, and safe disposal of toxic chemicals and to encourage the use of the least toxic products whenever feasible.

Under this law, all retail establishments which sell household chemical products are required to display prominent signs warning consumers about the dangers of household chemicals and to make information available through municipal offices, Health Department district offices, and the Department of Weights, Measures, and Consumer Protection.

To be in compliance with the law, retail establishments where household chemical products are on display for sale must post one sign at each point of sale (cash register or equivalent) in the store and a minimum of one brochure outlining products which require proper disposal must be available for review by customers.
