Hazardous Waste should always be disposed of properly. The Factoria Household Hazardous Waste Drop-Off Site is available to accept household hazardous waste at no charge. Visit their website for more information.
Hazardous Waste disposal details include:
The following limits apply at all the household hazardous waste facilities:
No latex paint. (Watch a VIDEO on 'How to dispose of latex paint'.)
gasoline - 30 gallons.
total waste - 50 gallons per customer per day.
container size – no larger than five gallons
fluorescent tubes or bulbs (not accepted from businesses) – limit 10.
automotive batteries - limit 5
There is a special Home Collection program for those King County residents unable to transport their household hazardous waste to one of the collection sites.
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.
The Factoria drop-off site is limited in the amount of hazardous waste that can be stored. If that limit is reached before the end of the day, the drop-off facility must shut down early.

For questions about disposing of unusual wastes or other questions, contact the Household Hazards Line at 206-296-4692 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
