Deschutes County sets household hazardous waste events


This summer, Deschutes County’s Department of Solid Waste is hosting special one-day collection events in Redmond, La Pine and Sisters where residents can drop off household hazardous waste for free.

“This is a great chance for people to get rid of their household hazardous waste, which can be difficult to dispose of in a safe way,” said Timm Schimke, Deschutes County’s Director of Solid Waste. “Events like these help people dispose of hazardous items correctly and helps keep them out of the of landfill.”

At each event, residents can drop off household hazardous waste products such as lawn and gardening materials, photo and swimming pool chemicals, paint and related products, cleaning solutions, motor oil and used gas, batteries, fluorescent bulbs and tubes, and small propane tanks.

Business-generated hazardous waste, medical waste, explosives, fireworks, compressed gas cylinders and barrels will not be accepted.
