How to Dispose of Holiday Household Hazardous Waste

There is usually some assembly required during that holiday season, and that sometimes involves batteries, CFL light bulbs and other household hazardous waste.

Fluorescent bulbs and tubes, Ni-Cad and Lithium rechargeable and other batteries can be disposed of free of charge at Seattle’s Household Hazardous waste stations.

Incandescent light bulbs, regular Christmas lights and alkaline batteries, such as the ones AA, AAA, C, and D can be disposed of in your curbside garbage.
