The City of Olathe operates a year-round program for Johnson County residents to safely dispose of Household Hazardous Waste (HHW) at no charge.
HHW is any unwanted household chemical that cannot safely be discarded in the trash or down the drain because it contains ingredients that are toxic, flammable, reactive, or corrosive.
Check the label to see if it contains key words such as "warning", "caution", "danger", "flammable", "toxic", or "poison" or symbols such as a skull and cross bones.
Proper disposal prevents HHW from entering the environment, damaging soil, groundwater and streams, or causing harm to people and animals.
Schedule your appointment 24-hours in advance.
Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday from 10:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m.
First, third, and fourth Saturday of every month from 8:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m.
