Wastemobile (traveling)

The travelling Wastemobile is open and maintaining a normal schedule. However, we encourage you to postpone bringing your hazardous waste to a Wastemobile event unless necessary. If you are unable to delay your visit, we recommend you do the following:

  • Stay in your vehicle when at a Wastemobile event.
  • Practice social/physical distancing by keeping at least 6 feet of space between yourself and others.
  • If you are sick or exhibiting symptoms of COVID-19, or if someone in your household is, we ask that you do not visit a drop-off site.

If you plan to delay your trip, please follow these guides for safely storing your hazardous waste until you can properly dispose of it:

Friday, Saturday & Sunday from 10a.m. – 5p.m.

The Wastemobile travels to many communities to provide hazardous waste disposal services for King County residents and qualifying businesses.

See what you can bring, what NOT to bring, and transporting hazardous waste and make your drop-off safer for you and the program staff.

Limits on quantities of waste and other restrictions

The following restrictions apply at all the household hazardous Wastemobile collection events:

  • We do not accept latex paint. Dry it out and dispose of it in the garbage. How to dispose of latex paint.
  • gasoline - 30 gallon limit (25 gallon limit for businesses)

For larger quantities or unusual wastes (except Factoria), call the Household Hazards Line, Monday to Friday, except holidays, 9:00 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. at (206) 296-4692 or toll free at 1-888-869-4233. For the Factoria HHW Drop-Off Service, there are no exceptions to these daily limits.

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.
