Q: As I clean out my garage — what do I do with hazardous materials?
A: Household hazardous waste such as paint, chemicals or cleaners should be taken to one of Metro’s household hazardous waste disposal sites. These materials don’t belong in any of the curbside containers.
Many common home and garden products are considered household hazardous waste. Look for the warning words by reading labels: caution, toxic, corrosive, pesticide, combustible, poison, flammable, warning or danger.
These items need special treatment and should be disposed of responsibly to help protect the health of children, wildlife and watersheds.
Never pour these products down the drain or onto the ground. And don't put them in your garbage. They contain potentially dangerous chemicals.
There is a $5 fee to dispose of an average load of household hazardous waste of up to 35 gallons at the Metro sites.
Interested in disposing other items not accepted at the curb?
Contact the Metro Recycling Information online or call 503-234-3000.
