What is Hazardous Waste?
Hazardous waste presents immediate and long-term risks to humans, animals, plants, and the environment. Many products you use in your yard and home contain chemicals that threaten the health, safety and welfare of the people, and the natural and scenic resources of Tillamook County.
Tillamook County’s Household Hazardous Waste Program will accept nearly all household items labeled with:
DANGER • WARNING • CAUTION • FLAMMABLE • IGNITABLE
POISON • TOXIC • COMBUSTIBLE • CORROSIVE • OXIDIZER
Products labeled as such require special handling and safe disposal. Tillamook County’s Solid Waste Department sponsors Household Hazardous Waste Collection so that residents of Tillamook County may safely dispose of items such as:
Paints and Stains
Pool and Spa Chemicals
Pesticides, Herbicides, Fertilizers, and Poisons
Motor Oil, Antifreeze, and other Automotive Fluids
Thinners and Solvents
Household Cleaners and Disinfectants
Art and Hobby Chemicals
Aerosol Spray Products
Propane Tanks or Bottles
Compact Fluorescent Light Bulbs or CFLs, Fluorescent Tubes and Ballasts
Mercury Containing Items, such as Thermometers and Thermostats
This facility DOES NOT ACCEPT Ammunition, Explosives, Medical Waste, including Sharps/Medical Syringes and Prescription Medications. For more information about disposal options for these items, please contact the Solid Waste Department for more information.
