We do have a chapter in our Spanish Farm*A*Syst materials on "Encuesta sobre
practicas de disposion y manejo de desechos peligrosos" or Assessing your
household hazrdous waste management practices"  .    It was developed by
native speakers and has gone through review by EPA and USDA.  It's a
simplified assessmen twith humorus illustrations that alerts homeowners and
farmers to household and automotive related chemicals that are considered
hazardous and then has charts to help them with proper disposal.  THe focus
is protecting family health and local water quality.  It doesn't cover much
P2.  However it would good first step in identifying  hazardous products
and  following proper management and disposal.  Ideally you would use it
with another educational document on household hazardous waste P2.

It is readily available in PDF format off our website at:
