Dispose of hazardous items at one of the free household hazardous waste collection events that take place throughout the region.
Metro's new season of free household hazardous waste roundups will begin in March 2013. View the schedule
Free household hazardous waste collection events take place from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. every week (except Memorial Day, Fourth of July and Labor Day weekends) between early March and mid-November in many communities across the Portland metropolitan area.
Be sure to prepare materials properly: no containers larger than five gallons and 35-gallon limit per load.
There is no charge to bring your toxic trash to Metro’s community events. A small portion of your monthly garbage bill goes to help pay for these services.
Metro recycles most of what it collects and disposes of the rest in a landfill specifically designed for hazardous waste.
Household hazardous waste is accepted six days a week year round at Metro’s two permanent household hazardous waste facilities. Learn more
If you live in Oregon outside Clackamas, Multnomah or Washington counties, call 1-800-RECYCLE for household hazardous waste event information in your community.
