MARION COUNTY HHW FACILITY:
The Marion County Household Hazardous Waste facility, located at 141 N. Coble, in Marion, is open every Friday from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. to receive Household Hazardous Waste (HHW). HHW can also be dropped off on other days by appointment. 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. 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.
