Grant County Solid Waste and Washington State Department of Ecology are sponsoring a hazardous waste collection to help make your home and environment a little safer.
You can bring old and unwanted household hazardous waste products to the Surf 'n Slide Waterpark Parking Lot this Saturday, from 9am to 3pm, and it will be disposed of for free. Look for the words pesticides, caustic, acid, flammable, warning, danger, poison or toxic on product labels. This event is for households only and waste from farms, businesses, agencies, governments, special districts and school districts will not be accepted.
Hazardous items include:
- oil based paints, stains and thinners

- contaminated motor oil
- cleaning products and spot removers
- weed killers
- fluorescent tubes
- swimming pool and hobby chemicals
You're asked to keep products in their original containers with labels and to pack them so that they don't tip over during transportation. It is also suggested that you keep these products away from children, pets, and passenger compartments of your vehicle.
