Clark County residents can dispose of household hazardous waste such as pesticides, poisons, paints, automotive fluids and other harmful chemicals at the three transfer stations in Clark County on most Fridays and weekends at NO COST.
Funding for the 2023 household hazardous waste advertising campaign was provided, in part, by the Washington State Department of Ecology.
Residents can drop off household hazardous waste at the following locations and times (business-generated hazardous waste is not accepted at these sites):
Guidelines for dropping off hazardous waste
- Keep HHW products separate (do not mix).
- Bring products in their original containers when possible.
- Seal products to prevent leaks and spills.
- Keep products away from the driver and passengers, i.e., in a trunk, truck bed, or trailer.
- Keep children and pets away from collection sites and events.
- Exceed 25 gallons or 220 pounds of HHW at fixed HHW collection facilities (okay at the satellite collection events)
- Bring asbestos, explosives/ammunition, or radioactive materials
Drop-off locations for paint recycling can be found on the PaintCare site locator. Most sites accept both latex and oil-based architectural paint products, including paints, stains, and varnishes. Paint must be dropped off in its original container with its original manufacturer’s label. A full list of products accepted by the program is available on the PaintCare website.
