Safely dispose of your old car batteries, oil, paint thinner and many other household hazardous items at no cost when the Wastemobile, a traveling household hazardous waste collection service in King County, continues its 2017 season with a collection event in Carnation, Aug. 18-20.

The Wastemobile will be in Tolt-MacDonald Park, on the 3600 block of Tolt Avenue, Carnation, 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, lamps, etc.), fluorescent bulbs/tubes and other items without a charge. The service is pre-paid through garbage and sewer utility fees.

Following its stop in Carnation, the Wastemobile travels to Covington for a household hazardous waste collection event, Sept. 8-10. The Wastemobile will be in the parking lot of Kent Fire Station No. 75, 15635 SE 272nd St., Covington.

Created in 1989, the Wastemobile was the first traveling hazardous waste disposal program in the nation. It is operated by the Local Hazardous Waste Management Program and goes throughout King County from the spring through fall.

Since first hitting the road, the Wastemobile has collected more than 17,000 tons of hazardous household waste from more than 466,000 customers.

For more information about disposal, including acceptable materials and quantity limits, call the Hazards Line at 206-296-4692, Monday through Friday between 9 a.m. and 4:30 p.m., or at kingcounty.gov.
