At Metro’s hazardous waste facilities there is a $5 fee to dispose of an average load of household hazardous waste. This $5 fee covers the cost of up to 35 gallons of household hazardous waste, and each additional 35 gallons is charged an additional $5. Additional charges apply for containers larger than 10 gallons. Collecting the fee helps to defray the costs of running the household hazardous waste program – it costs Metro $54 to handle and properly dispose of an average load of hazardous waste brought to a facility.
There is no fee for paint waste covered under the Oregon PaintCare program. Learn more about PaintCare
There is no charge to bring your toxic trash to Metro’s community events.
Join Metro’s exchange program for just $5 per container, and get a new sharps container at no cost each time you bring a full one to Metro’s hazardous waste facilities (the $5 fee per load of hazardous waste also applies).
Businesses that generate less than 220 pounds of hazardous waste per month can enroll in Metro's Conditionally Exempt Generator program. Learn more
