Household Hazardous Waste
FREE service for all Walla Walla County residents!
The Household Hazardous Waste Facility provides citizens of Walla Walla County a way to properly manage their household hazardous waste. Examples of household hazardous waste include: paint, pesticides, and motor oil.

This waste, if improperly disposed of - such as thrown in the trash, poured in storm drains, sewers, or on the ground -could contaminate streams or creeks, expose children and pets to dangerous materials or poisons, and harm the environment.
Poison Prevention Week is March 16 - 22
Poison Prevention Week focuses on educating the public about the potential for accidental poisoning from chemicals and medications that are commonly found in homes. The Sudbury HHW Facility provides free disposal of residential household hazardous waste year-round in order to protect children, pets, and the environment from accidental exposure to harmful chemicals. Play it safe and properly dispose of dangerous items by using this free service for residents!
For medication disposal, the Walla Walla Police Department will be offering a free medication take-back event on April 26. Please contact Vicky Ruley at for more information on the event and watch the City's website for more information closer to the event.
