 New HazoHouse Opens March 4th.

Expanded Schedule

Thurston County’s HazoHouse operation moves from its current location to a new facility on Friday, March 4. The new facility is located at the county’s Waste and Recovery Center at 2418 Hogum Bay Road in Lacey. The new HazoHouse brings the program, which allows for the safe disposal of hazardous household materials, into compliance with current laws and regulations. Upgrades include a sheltered drop-off service, easy drive-in/drive-out access and a state-of-the-art ventilation system.

With the move to the new site, HazoHouse adds Tuesdays to its schedule. As of March 4, HazoHouse will be open Friday, Saturday, Sunday, Monday and Tuesday, 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. The Recycling Center and the Goodwill Industries donation drop-off services will also move to the new site. A dedication ceremony is being planned for mid-April.

HazoHouse accepts hazardous household items such as solvents, cleaning supplies, fluorescent light tubes, pesticides and other products for safe disposal and recycling. The service is free to residents. A complete list of accepted materials and other information is available at the county’s Solid Waste web site, or you can call 360-867-2491.
