Home Collection Service for Eligible Seniors and Residents with Disabilities in King County

This pick up service helps eligible King County seniors and residents with disabilities safely dispose of hazardous waste they may have in their home or garage.

Contact the Household Hazards Line at (206) 296-4692 or 1-888-Toxiced (869-4233), 9:00 am to 4:30 pm, Monday through Friday, except holidays, to find out if you are eligible.

Eligibility questions include:

  • Are you over the age of 65 or are you a person with disabilities?
  • Are you able to drive to the local household hazardous waste collection facilities or Wastemobile events?
  • Is there anyone who can drive you (family, friends, or neighbors) and your hazardous waste to the household hazardous waste collection facilities or Wastemobile events?

If you meet the eligibility requirements, you will be asked:

  • Your name, address and telephone number.
  • The types and amounts of waste you have for collection. Household hazardous waste is products that you no longer have a use or need for including pesticides, oil-based paints, solvents, batteries, fluorescent lights, motor oil, antifreeze, and household cleaners.

Note: The home collection staff does not collect other special wastes such as latex paint, tires, electronics, or medications.

A collection date will be scheduled, usually Wednesdays between 9:00 am and 3:00 pm. If you do not meet the eligibility requirements, but live in King County, you can dispose of household hazardous waste at any of the household hazardous waste collection facilities or Wastemobile events. There is no fee for household hazardous waste disposal. It is paid for in your utility bills.
