Unused, old, or unneeded hazardous products clutter up the home. And because they can be flammable, corrosive, and poisonous, they are dangerous to store. There’s an easy solution: no-fee disposal through the Hazardous Waste Management Program.
You’ll often find these products in the garage, under the sink, or in the basement. Because they can corrode, catch fire, react, or poison, they require special disposal. The good news? They’re accepted at disposal locations located throughout King County.
1. Gather the items
If the label includes words like danger, poison, warning, or caution, it’s probably hazardous waste.
With four facilities and a traveling Wastemobile, you’ve got options.
3. Prep for disposal
Keep items in their original containers, label products that are not marked, and secure items so they won’t tip or leak. Store products away from the passenger compartment of your vehicle.
4. Drop off
Bring your items to the designated drop-off location. There’s no fee, since the service is already funded through your utility bill.
You’ve achieved safe disposal, less clutter, and zero guilt.
