All King County and city residents can safely dispose of old car batteries, oil, paint thinner and many other household hazardous items at no cost when the Wastemobile continues its 24th year of service with a stop in Bothell, June 28-30.
The Wastemobile will be in the parking lot of the Seattle Times building, 19200 120th Ave. NE, from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. each day.
Residents can drop off household hazardous waste items including pesticides, oil-based paints, automotive products (oil, antifreeze, auto batteries, etc.), fluorescent bulbs/tubes and other items free of charge — as the service is paid for through garbage and sewer utility fees.
Looking for reusable household products? The Wastemobile provides free products to the public, such as oil-based paint, stain and primer, plus wood care and cleaning products.
These products are subject to availability, and residents sign a release form prior to receiving the materials.
For more information about disposal, including acceptable materials and quantity limits, call the Local Hazardous Waste Management Program’s Hazards Line at (206) 296-4692, Monday through Friday between 9 a.m. and 4:30 p.m., except holidays.
Recorded information is available after hours, or by visiting the Wastemobile website at http://www.HazWasteHelp.org.
