Got waste?

Then get your environmentally-aware self (along with your waste) on down to the King County Wastemobile, which will be parked at the Criminal Justice Training Center Oct. 10-12.

The Wastemobile will be open for business from 10am – 5pm both days in the parking lot of the center, located at 19010 First Avenue South (map below).

Operated by King County as part of the Local Hazardous Waste Management Program, the Wastemobile offers King County residents the ability to drop off hazardous household waste items, including:

  • Pesticides
  • Chlorine bleach
  • Oil-based paints
  • Automotive products (oil, antifreeze, auto batteries, etc.)
  • Fluorescent bulbs/ballasts
  • And other items

All free of charge!

By properly disposing of these materials and keeping them out of drains and landfills, King County residents are helping safeguard the environment.

Please note that latex paint is no longer accepted during household hazardous waste collection events. Research has shown that dried or solidified latex paint can be safely disposed in the regular garbage.

Created in 1989, the Wastemobile was the first program of its kind in the nation. In its 18 years in operation, the program collected more than 14,771 tons of household hazardous waste from nearly 330,000 customers.

For more information, including acceptable materials, quantity limits and how to properly dispose of latex paint at home, call the Local Hazardous Waste Management Program’s Hazards Line at 206-296-4692, Monday through Friday between 9am and 4:30pm, except holidays. Recorded information is available after hours.
