Protect our health: clean spills when they happen.
The state Model Toxics Control Act (MTCA) requires reporting and cleanup of spills.
Common spills include:
- Vehicle fluids.
- Lawn and garden chemicals.
- Oil-based paint.
- Heating oil.
When do I have to report a spill?
Report all spills to Ecology when they happen. Early reporting and cleanup reduces:
- Spread of contamination.
- Cleanup costs.
- The impact to public health and the environment.
