Products are hazardous in different ways, based on their specific danger. A product like pesticide is “toxic” because it causes illness. “Flammable” means the product burns easily (ie. paint thinner). Waste that is “corrosive,” like oven cleaner, eats through other materials. A hazardous item like fireworks might also be “reactive,” because it causes a dangerous reaction when exposed to heat, air, or water.
When in doubt, look for labels that emphasize these words: combustible, warning, caution, danger, harmful is swallowed, and keep out of reach of children and pets.
