Many household products like paint, soap, and fertilizer can hurt people, fish, and wildlife if used or disposed of incorrectly — especially if they are poured down storm drains. Safe disposal is easy to do and can make a big impact.
Bring your hazardous waste to Metro’s permanent facilities year-round or to a collection event across the tri-county area from March through November. Call Metro Recycling Information at 503.234.3000 or check out their website for more information.
