You'll be able to safely dispose of old car batteries, oil, paint and other household hazardous waste June 29-July 1 when King County’s Wastemobile rolls into the store in Kirkland.
The wastemobile program was started in 1989 to help residents protect the environment by properly disposing of hazardous waste. It travels throughout the county spring through fall, and has now collected 14,000 tons of hazardous waste from 333,000 residents.
The Wastemobile will be in the Fred Meyer parking lot, 12221 120th Ave. NE, from 10 a.m.-5 p.m. each day.
The Wastemobile also provides free re-useable household 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 need to sign a release before receiving them.
For more information about waste disposal, including acceptable materials and quantity limits, call the Hazardous Waste Management Program's Hazards Line at 206-296-4692, Monday through Friday, 9 a.m.-4:30 p.m. Recorded information is available after hours, or by visiting the Wastemobile website at www.hazwastehelp.org.
