Spill cleanup information

Updated 6 months ago 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.
