Hazardous Materials

Not accepting pesticides, weed killer, pool chemicals or bleach until further notice

The Johnson County Household Hazardous Waste Facility is not accepting pesticides, yard chemicals and other poisons, pool chemicals and bleach until further notice.

 

This is due to a fire at the processing facility (located in Ohio) that incinerates certain materials that are accepted at the Johnson County Household Hazardous Waste facility. Our facility has reached its storage capacity for these materials and can no longer safely accept more of these materials at this time.

 

We ask you to please hold onto these items until we are able to collect them again. If you have questions, please contact Trent Thompson, Solid Waste Program manager, at 913-715-6938 or  [email protected].
