Disposing of Chemicals and other Hazardous Materials
As a result of the fire at the Benton County Household Hazardous Waste Facility located at the City of Richland's Horn Rapids Landfill on June 27, 2010 most household and business hazardous waste will not be accepted at that facility until further notice. These wastes include paints, waste oil, solvents, antifreeze, pesticides, aerosols, pool chemicals, and cleaners. Mobile collection events for the collection of these materials will be scheduled and published on the Benton County Solid Waste website link below. Please do not place household hazardous wastes in your garbage or recycling container.
For more information on what you need to do to dispose of Hazardous Waste, visit the Benton County – Solid Waste link below, or call the City of Kennewick Public Works Department at 509-585-4419.
