What Items Not to Place in Your Temporary Storage Unit
Hazardous chemicals should not be placed into your storage facility. This includes powdered, liquid and aerosol chemicals. Chemicals such as paints and paint thinners, pesticides, herbicides, mineral spirits and cleaning fluids can leak. They can also release gases into the air, which can be harmful when breathed. Some of these chemicals become unstable in hot conditions, which could cause them to leach out of their containers. If you have leftover insecticides, paints or other related hazardous chemicals, contact the local waste disposal authorities and find out how to safely dispose of them before your move.
