San Juan County’s annual hazardous waste round-up will take place on San Juan Island on Saturday, June 11 for island residents.
The residential event takes place at the San Juan Transfer Station on Sutton Road from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Acceptable materials include pesticides, fungicides and other poisons, gasoline and other used fuels, wood preservatives, solvents and thinners, pool and photo chemicals, resins, corrosives, degreasers, cleaning products, mercury, rechargeable batteries, propane cylinders, and aerosols.
Flares, explosives, ammunition, antifreeze, motor oil, and fluorescent light bulbs and tubes will not be accepted. Organizers are also discouraging latex- and oil-based paints, which can instead be recycled through the PaintCare program at Ace Hardware.
Thanks to the San Juan County Solid Waste Program and the Washington State Department of Ecology there is no charge for households disposing 25 gallons of waste or less.
