Household Hazardous Waste

household hazardous waste itemsThe Riley County Household Hazardous Waste facility is the permanent collection center for common hazardous materials that can be found in households

EFFECTIVE 5-30-2023 our reuse room will be open. You may come and shop for the free items we have available.  Please Note: Temporarily, we are unable to park on our carport that is located in front of the reuse room. We ask that you park in our parking lot and walk into the reuse room. 

We still accept Riley County Household Hazardous Waste. However, since the carport isn't available please put your HHW items onto the gray carts that will be located under our "Visitor Parking" sign. If you have any questions, you can call us at 785-539-3202.  THANK YOU

Types of Waste Accepted

We are also able to accept many hazardous waste items from Riley County businesses, but there will be a disposal fee. Please call ahead to schedule your delivery of business waste items by calling 785-539-3202.

Our facility houses both Riley County Noxious Weed Department and the Household Hazardous Waste Department.

Currently, we are the host county for an 11 county region called Big Lakes Regional HHW including Riley, Clay, Geary, Dickinson, Pottawatomie, Marshall, Nemaha, Morris, Marion, Washington and Wabaunsee counties.
