Hazardous waste collection services resume normal schedules

Three Wastemobile staff stand together in personal protective gear

Starting July 23, the Hazardous Waste Management Program's disposal sites will operate on a normal schedule. Our home collection program remains temporarily suspended at this time.

While household waste disposal facilities are open, Hazardous Waste Management Program officials encourage postponing non-essential trips to help prevent the spread of COVID-19. 

If you delay your trip, keep these tips in mind for safely storing household hazardous waste at home:

  • Keep hazardous products away from children and pets.
  • Keep hazardous products away from food items.
  • Keep hazardous products in original containers and make sure they have a label.
  • Never mix products. Some mixtures produce a poisonous gas.
  • Keep hazardous products away from drains.

If you cannot delay your trip, follow these recommendations:

  • Wear a mask and keep at least 6 feet of space from others.
  • Follow the instructions of the hazardous waste staff at disposal sites.  
  • Wastemobile customers should stay in their vehicle.
  • Don’t visit a disposal location if you or someone in your household is sick or experiencing symptoms of COVID-19. 

Please see our press release for more information.

If you have questions or would like to be notified when services resume, please contact us at haz.waste@kingcounty.gov or 206-296-4692.
