Information is available on what happens to the hazardous waste once it is collected at the traveling Wastemobile or the other collection sites.

Service Costs

The traveling Wastemobile is funded through a surcharge on solid waste disposal and wastewater discharge. As a result, residents bringing material to the Wastemobile are not charged a fee on site. This cost premium underscores the importance of making waste prevention our top priority.

Safe Handling

  • Don't mix products.
  • Keep products in their original containers. (At the Factoria household hazardous waste drop-off site, gasoline containers are not returned to the customers.)
  • Label products that aren’t in their original containers.
  • Secure products so they can’t tip over and/or leak.
  • Transport similar, sealed containers upright, in cardboard boxes.
  • Secure the load in a vehicle or trailer. Vehicles arriving at public or private transfer stations in King County with unsecured loads can be charged an unsecured load fee.
  • Store products away from the passenger compartment and separate waste products from those that will be retained.
  • Stay in the vehicle while waste is unloaded at the Wastemobile and the Auburn Wastemobile.
