The Marion County Household Hazardous Waste facility, located at 141 N. Coble, in Marion, is open Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. to receive Household Hazardous Waste (HHW). Due to the restrictions KDHE places on the types of waste this facility can receive and/or store we ask that waste not be left at the facility after hours or if no one is at the office. Also available for use is the Mobile Collection Unit which is brought to other cities in the county at prearranged times for HHW collection.
The Mobile Collection Unit is scheduled for pickups in both spring and fall.
When determining what should be brought to the HHW facility, you should look for products labeled, DANGER, POISON, WARNING, CAUTION. This facility does NOT take UNKNOWN materials. Please ensure that all containers are labeled as to contents. Also containers should be in good condition. If they are not then they should be over-packaged in a some manner to prevent spillage while in transit or at the HHW facility.
DO NOT BRING:
Some products can be safely disposed of in your trash. Latex or water based paint that has dried out can be disposed of in the trash. Many cleaning products can be allowed to evaporate in small amounts (one pint or less) in the open air, away from flame, people, or animals. Check the product label for instructions on the safe disposal of empty containers of other types of household waste. Empty household pesticide containers may be wrapped in newspaper and disposed of in the trash.
