Hazardous Waste

MOSES LAKE - Grant County residents can dispose of household hazardous waste for free on Saturday at the Grant County Road District 2 shop near Moses Lake.

The free disposal event is from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the shop located at 12171 Road 3 Northeast (Wheeler Road). The event is for waste generated by households only.

Hazardous products often have labels stating “warning, danger, caustic, flammable and poison,” according to county officials.

The items should be brought to the event in the original containers with the labels if possible.

Examples of items people can dispose of at the event include:

  • Oil-based and latex paint
  • Paint thinners
  • Household batteries
  • Solvents
  • Brake fluid
  • Spot removers
  • Drain openers
  • Insecticides
  • Weed killers
  • Swimming pool and hobby chemicals

Propane tanks, fluorescent lights, mercury-containing lights, motor oil, and automotive batteries will not be accepted at the event.  There are year-round collection sites available for propane tanks, used oil, fluorescent, mercury-containing lights, and automotive batteries in Grant County.
