The HHW Facility is a place Sedgwick County residents can dispose of old chemicals and household hazardous waste free of charge. It offers a way to get rid of old chemicals and materials to help prevent them from getting into the waste stream and polluting the environment.
Wichita, KS 67213
South of Kellogg off of Seneca (at the corner of Osage and Stillwell)
9 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. Tuesday to Friday
9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturdays
CLOSED SUNDAYS AND MONDAYS
We will accept almost all chemical items from a residential house, such as: paint, aerosols, batteries, used oil, gasoline, antifreeze, pesticides, herbicides, garden chemicals, household cleaners, fluorescent bulbs, propane, and old, unwanted medication (no controlled substances).
Any resident of Sedgwick County can bring their left over or unused hazardous waste materials to the facility.
We strongly discourage this idea. Any individual that transports household hazardous waste for another party assumes all liability during the transport. State and federal laws allow individuals to transport their own products. Parties that transport household hazardous waste for other people must have a permit from the Kansas Department of Health and Environmental and the Environmental Protection Agency to be in full compliance with state and federal laws.
Businesses generating less than 55 pounds a month of hazardous waste are eligible to use the Small Quantity Generator program at the Household Hazardous Waste Facility. Call 660-7464 for more information.
We have a Swap-&-Shop where residents can take selected materials home for free. Some materials that might be found in the Swap-&-Shop are paint, fertilizers, aerosols, and household chemicals
The city of Wichita used to operate a facility at 2305 E 57 S., but Sedgwick County took over responsibilities for household hazardous waste disposal in 2002. The facility in south Wichita closed when the new HHW facility opened.
