You should never dispose of your household hazardous waste down the sink, on the ground, down a storm drain or in your garbage can. Doing so can negatively impact our environment by contaminating surface water and groundwater.
Deschutes County has a Hazardous Waste Facility where you can bring the following hazardous wastes:
- Paint, stains and solvents
- Fuels and thinners
- Oil filters
- Household cleaning products
- Pesticides and herbicides
- Rechargeable batteries
- Fluorescent light bulbs, tubes and ballasts
- Pool and spa chemicals
The Household Hazardous Waste Facility is open the 2nd & 4th Friday & Saturday of each month, from 9 am – 3pm. Check the calendar for the next open collection date.
