We have a bunch of outdoor pesticides & toxic "cleaning" products left by the previous owners of our home.

I'm debating with myself if it's better to offer them up on Craigslist or Freesysle to someone who might use them, or to just bring them to our local hazardous waste disposal drop-off in town.

If people are going to buy these types of products anyway, should I just give away the ones we have?

I'd probably Freecycle the "cleaning" products but bring the pesticides to the hazardous waste collection.

Do you have a local hospice that would take donations of cleaning supplies and pesticides? They are always in need of everything. Some will take used and some won't.
