The Wastemobile traveling hazardous waste collection service will be in Redmond on July 14-16 at the Home Depot parking lot located at 17777 N.E. 76th St. from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. each day.

Residents can drop off household hazard items like pesticides, oil-based paints, automotive products like oil, antifreeze and lamps, fluorescent bulbs and tubes and other items without a charge.

The service is paid for through the garbage and sewer utility fees collected by the county.

Following its stop in Redmond, the Wastemobile will be set up in Bothell between July 28-30 at the parking lot of the Seattle Times building at 19200 120th Ave. N.E.

The Wastemobile was created in 1989, a press release from the county said, to help protect the environment and public health by safely disposing of hazardous materials and keeping them out of drains and landfills.

It has collected more than 17,000 tons of hazardous household waste from some 466,000 customers.
