Household Hazardous Waste

The Johnson County Household Hazardous Waste facility located in Mission off of I-35 and Lamar is now closed.

Beginning in summer 2023, Johnson County will operate a new Household Hazardous Waste facility in Overland Park off College Boulevard and Mastin Street. Prior to the opening of the new facility, residents may dispose of hazardous items at the City of Olathe’s Household Hazardous Waste Facility (1420 S. Robinson Drive).

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
  • GasolineĀ 
  • StainsĀ 
  • Solvents
  • Insecticides
  • Pool chemicals
  • Any other common household products that include the words “corrosive,” “reactive,” “toxic,” “flammable,” or “explosive” on the label.

In addition to hazardous waste drop-off, paint will also be available for purchase through the re-blended paint program.

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.
