After a fun night of fireworks, it is important to dispose of them correctly so that no accidents occur.

There are three simple steps to take advised by Homewood Disposal.

You should completely soak the fireworks in the water overnight.

After a whole night of soaking, double wrap the used fireworks in either plastic wrap or a bag to prevent them from drying.

As fireworks are not considered household hazardous, you can then simply throw them away in your trash.

They should not, however, be thrown away in recycling or yard waste containers.

Are fireworks legal in all states?

Despite the pretty aesthetics of fireworks, they are unfortunately not allowed in every US state, per Reader's Digest.

States like California and New Jersey only permit non-aerial and non-explosive fireworks.

Other states, including Texas and Florida, allow the majority of consumer fireworks.

There is also one state that has a complete ban on fireworks: Massachusetts.

While they allow fireworks done by professionals, such as Independence Day fireworks, civilians are not allowed to use them on their own.

Despite the illegal fireworks in the state, there were more than 30 people severely injured from fireworks in the past ten years, as reported by the Commonwealth of Massachusetts.

What are some fireworks guidelines?

As beautiful as fireworks are, it is extremely crucial to be careful and take precautions when deciding to use fireworks, per the New Jersey Department of Community Affairs.

You should purchase them only from reputable places and refrain from buying them in broken packaging.

It is also not a good idea to try and fix broken fireworks.

As obvious as it sounds, fireworks should never be used indoors or in extremely windy or dry weather.

You should also have water ready in case of an emergency and follow guidelines.

Fireworks should also never be aimed at a person or an animal, or even at buildings.

"While non-aerial fireworks are legal in New Jersey, it is important to remember that any fireworks are inherently dangerous because they can burn people, animals, and property," said Lt Governor Sheila Y. Oliver.

"We urge the public, especially people with young children under their care, to review the state’s firework safety guidelines and to use fireworks with an abundance of caution."

"Sparklers can be an invitation to personal injury and should not be treated as toys for children. In fact, one sparkler can reach about 1,200˚F, which can cause third degree burns and serious eye injury to anyone handling it," continued Lt Governor Oliver.
