Have you ever wondered what to do with old paint, household cleaners, or weed killer? For Johnson County residents there are two options for getting rid of these items, and many more. Both Johnson County government and the City of Olathe operate household hazardous waste (HHW) collection facilities that collect and safely dispose of a wide range of household chemicals, and is free for Johnson County residents to use. Accepted items include paint, stain, weed killer, cleaners, used oil, aerosols, and much more.
The Johnson County HHW facility is located in northeast Johnson County and is by appointment only. In addition to drop-offs, Johnson County also gives out usable items in their Free Store. Usable latex paint is also available for purchase in white, beige, gray, and brown for $10-25 per 5 gallon bucket depending on the color. Schedule a drop-off today!
The City of Olathe HHW facility is open to any Johnson County resident. They also accept electronics for recycling from Olathe residents only, and will not accept business waste.
If you have questions on either one of these programs please contact Brandon Hearn at [email protected] or 913-715-6936
