About us
Protecting Public Health and the Environment

The Hazardous Waste Management Program is a coalition of local governments working together for a healthier and cleaner King County by reducing the risks of production, use, storage, and disposal of hazardous materials.

Program Funding

The program is funded by fees on solid waste and sewer services in King County. Residents and businesses pay fees based on their garbage and sewer use and are also charged for each trip to a solid waste transfer station or landfill.

Collection, prevention, and policy

We provide services for 2.1 million residents and over 60,000 businesses in King County. We provide convenient hazardous waste disposal services as well as education and outreach services to reduce exposures to toxic materials where people live and work. We also promote systematic changes to help ensure that products are safe for public health and the environment.
