Household hazardous wastes are products that contain ingredients that are toxic, flammable, reactive or corrosive. These include paint thinner, fluorescent lights, pesticides and car batteries. If disposed of improperly, these products can be harmful to humans, wildlife and the environment. Proper disposal prevents household hazardous waste from entering the environment; damaging soil, groundwater and streams; or causing harm to people and animals.
The Wastemobile and fixed facilities are funded through a surcharge on solid waste disposal and wastewater discharge and there is no direct fee to residents. The average disposal cost is over $75 per participant, however residents utilizing the facilities are not charged a fee on site. This cost premium underscores the importance of making waste prevention our top priority.
Created in 1989, the Wastemobile was the first program of its kind in the nation. In 25 years of operation, the program has collected nearly 15,000 tons of household hazardous waste from nearly 500,000 customers. In 21 collection events last year, the Wastemobile served more than 13,000 King County residents, collecting an average of 75 pounds of hazardous waste per customer (for a total of 506 tons).

Click below for a breakdown of the most common products and items we get questioned about.

This is also contributing to the backlog of waste in the facilities and uses valuable space in containers being transported for disposal in a landfill. The county is encouraging residents to take green waste and wood debris to alternate locations. A list of those local businesses can be found by visiting:
