Where to Take Other Waste
Latex paints are not hazardous waste and can be solidified and disposed of as regular garbage. Use cat litter or special paint solidifying products available at some hardware stores. Consider giving newer extra paint away or donating to local organizations, and use the 2good2toss website or local newspapers and radio to advertise.
Alkaline household batteries (A, AA, AAA, C, D, etc.) are not hazardous and can be disposed of in your regular trash.
For locations that recycle rechargeable batteries (commonly found in cordless power tools, cellular and cordless phones, laptop computers, camcorders, digital cameras, and remote control toys), visit the call2recycle website.
The Moderate Risk Waste Facility at the Regional Transfer Station, Home Depot, and Around Again will accept rechargeable batteries.
As of January 1, 2015, Washington state residents can recycle fluorescent lights and other mercury-containing lights at no charge.
The main categories of lights accepted for recycling by the LightRecycle Washington program are fluorescent tubes (straight or curved), compact fluorescent lights (CFLs), and high intensity discharge lights (HIDs). The program does not accept lighting fixtures or ballasts.
LightRecycle Washington is funded by an environmental handling charge, or “EHC”. An EHC of $0.25 per light will be added to all mercury-containing lights sold at retail stores in Washington state.
