What To Do With Return to A-Z Guide

Adhesive, solvent-based

Solvent-based adhesives are commonly known as extremely strong glues and sealants. These adhesives work well for construction projects.  These items should not be placed in the curbside recycling bin and are not accepted at any RAA divisions.


Recycle Right!

If you need to dispose of solvent-based adhesives, make sure the lids are screwed on, and take them to the Washtenaw County Home Toxics disposal site.


Live Zero Waste!

Before buying new, do some research to identify potential less toxic adhesives for your project. Use up all adhesives you do have before purchasing more.
