Household Hazardous Waste

Improper disposal of household hazardous waste can cause environmental issues and may present health hazards. Household hazardous waste includes:

  • Paint
  • Oil
  • Compact fluorescent light bulbs
  • Gasoline 
  • Stains 
  • Solvents
  • Insecticides
  • Pool chemicals
  • Any other common household products that include the words “corrosive,” “reactive,” “toxic,” “flammable,” or “explosive” on the label.

Johnson County residents can drop off household hazardous waste by appointment at the County’s disposal facility. Make an appointment online or call 913-715-6900.

Rechargeable batteries can be recycled at Overland Park’s recycling center. Alkaline batteries can be safely disposed of with normal household waste. Many local hardware and auto parts stores accept small quantities of batteries for recycling.
