Spill cleanup information

Updated by Cassie Ates

Some orders may contain hazardous materials such as paint, nail polish remover, or rubbing alcohol. These products may require special handling if damaged, leaking, and/or spilling to ensure they are safely managed and properly disposed. Consider having the following items in your vehicle in case a spill occurs: 

  • Plastic gloves 
  • Paper towels 
  • Trash or zip top bags to contain spill cleanup material
  • Small broom and dustpan 

Here are helpful tips if an item containing hazardous materials has leaked, spilled, or is damaged: 

  • In the app, drivers may update the order to indicate it cannot be delivered. 
  • If an item has leaked and/or spilled, please return the damaged and/or leaking product to the pick-up location and ensure all affected products within the order are returned.
  • For some offers, the pickup location may provide information or paperwork about any hazardous products and/or products requiring special handling. 
  • Steps such as closing the container up or turning a package upright can help to stop or minimize the leak, spill, and/or damaged items from spreading. The Department of Transportation guidelines for cleanup may be useful for your reference.

If you have a question on how to handle an item that has spilled, contact the Hazardous Materials Information Center.
