Where to legally dispose of hazardous materials

Safely and legally get rid of most chemical waste at Thurston County’s HazoHouse.

Why it’s important to report

Most drains flow untreated directly into nearby streams and rivers, and ultimately into our drinking water. That’s why dumping is illegal per Thurston County ordinance 14404.
