Proper Disposal

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
  • Antifreeze
  • Aerosols
  • Household cleaning products
  • Poisons
  • Pesticides and herbicides
  • Fertilizers
  • Rechargeable batteries
  • Fluorescent light bulbs, tubes and ballasts
  • Pool and spa chemicals
  • Gasoline


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.
