What do I do if I spill a hazardous material?

  • If the spill is an immediate threat to your (or anyone's) health:
    ---Call 9-911

  • If the spill is greater than 30 ml, or you do not know the hazards of the material, or the spill may impact the environment by entering a sink, storm drain or the soil, or you cannot clean up within 15 minutes:
    ---Call 725-9999 (Day and Night)

  • If you know the hazards of the material, less than 30 ml have spilled, and you can clean it up with available equipment:
