Free Hazardous Waste Disposal

September 13 @ 8:00 am - September 16 @ 5:00 pm

Bring your old batteries, paint, and other unwanted hazardous products.

Get ready for the 2024 Wastemobile season, starting in Bothell on Feb. 23! This mobile hazardous waste collection service will be cruising throughout King County most weekends until October, making it easy and safe for you to drop off household hazardous waste for free.

The kickoff event happens in two weeks at the University of Washington – Bothell campus from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Feb. 23-25. Is your calendar already booked? Be sure to check out the schedule below to find one of the other 20 events throughout the year.

What can you bring?

Some of the common items we collect at these events include:

  • Batteries
  • Oil-based paint
  • Antifreeze
  • Pesticides

Many other hazardous items can also be safely disposed of at no cost. Check the full list of accepted items and quantity limits for residents and eligible businesses.

Before you go, a little preparation will make the experience safe and efficient for you and staff:

  1. Don’t mix products.
  2. Keep products in their original containers.
  3. Label products that are not in their original containers.
  4. Secure products to prevent spills or leaks.
  5. Store hazardous products in your vehicle’s trunk, truck bed, or trailer, separate from items you want to keep.
  6. Stay in your vehicle and follow on-site staff directions during your Wastemobile visit.
