Riley County Household Hazardous Waste provides citizens of Riley County a GREAT service!
The next time you clean out your cabinets at home, bring the hazardous items to us, for FREE!! It keeps them out of the landfill to help our environment tremendously! Once we receive the material from you, it will either be identified as something that can safely be REUSED for others to take from our reuse shelves for FREE, or it will be disposed of properly! We accept all types of oil, antifreeze, gas, batteries (car batteries all the way down to the itty bitty hearing aid batteries), Florescent bulbs (including compacts), all aerosols, household cleaning supplies, yard chemicals and fertilizer, gas grill propane cylinders, latex and oil-based paints, stains, and medications (we cannot accept controlled drugs or sharps). If there is any type of item not listed above that you are concerned about putting in your trash, just call us for more info at 539-3202.
We are open Monday-Friday 7:30 am - 4:00 pm -- 6245 Tuttle Creek Blvd., Manhattan KS (we are with Noxious Weed Dept.)
We also accept waste at HOWIES in Manhattan-- the SECOND SATURDAY of every month from 8 am – 12 noon.
