A safer, healthier home in King County
Unused, old, or unneeded hazardous products clutter up the home and are dangerous to store.

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.

Common hazardous products

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.

Follow these steps for convenient, no-fee hazardous waste disposal.
