Household hazardous waste disposal available year-round in King County

Make a clean start to the new year by safely disposing of old car batteries, oil, solvents and other household hazardous waste through a program that is available at no charge to all King County residents.

The Local Hazardous Waste Program in King County provides a year-round household hazardous waste service at the Auburn SuperMall, 1101 SuperMall Way, Auburn (next to Sports Authority).

Open from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. each Saturday and Sunday, the Auburn Wastemobile location offers the same service as the roving Wastemobile that travels to cities throughout King County from spring through fall.

The Wastemobile accepts a wide range of household hazardous waste, including oil-based paint, household cleaners, propane tanks and other hazardous household wastes.

By properly disposing of these wastes and keeping them out of the trash, sewers and storm drains, King County residents are helping safeguard the environment and reducing hazardous materials in their homes.

King County businesses with small amounts of hazardous waste can also take advantage of the Wastemobile service up to four times a year.

This program is not for businesses that regularly generate hazardous waste, have regular pick-ups by a contracted vendor, or generate extremely hazardous waste. More information is available by calling the Businesses Waste Line, 206-263-8899, or via email, business.waste@kingcounty.gov.

The Local Hazardous Waste Management Program is a partnership of local governments including Seattle, King County, the suburban and other cities in King County, working together to manage hazardous wastes and protect human health and the environment.
