The Wastemobile, a traveling household hazardous waste collection service in King County, continues its 2017 season with a collection event in Bothell, Sept. 15-17.
The Wastemobile will be in the parking lot of the Seattle Times building, 19200 120th Ave. NE, Bothell.
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.
Residents help protect the environment and public health by safely disposing of the hazardous materials and keeping them out of drains and landfills. Since first hitting the road, the Wastemobile has collected more than 17,000 tons of hazardous household waste from more than 466,000 customers.
