Electronic Waste Appointments:
You must make a SEPARATE appointment for electronic waste. It is by calling in ONLY: 913-715-6900. We only accept ewaste during special events. Learn more about recycling electronics.
IMPORTANT NOTE: The online Appointment Scheduler does NOT automatically schedule a time for you. You choose the date and time from a list of available options. If you have not chosen a date and time then you have not completed the process.
After you have made an appointment, we will provide you with directions to the hazardous materials facility. If you make your appointment by phone, you are forwarded to a recording. If you make your appointment online, you will receive an email.
The facility is located inside a secured county wastewater treatment plant in Mission just off Foxridge and Lamar. It is not accessible without an appointment. Directions will be given to you once you've made an appointment. Directions are not given on this website. Please call 913-715-6900 if you need more explanation. We do not accept waste at our main office location in Olathe.
As an alternative, the City of Olathe operates a free collection program for all Johnson County residents. Appointments are required, except for the second Saturday. Visit City of Olathe for more information.
Please read the following guidelines:
- Be sure to package your waste carefully.
- Make sure lids are on tight.
- If container is leaking, place in a bucket with kitty litter.
- Do not leave containers in a hot or freezing car for extended periods or overnight.
- Package containers in a way that they will not fall over, such as in a box.
- If possible, re-label containers if the original label is missing.
- Please do not bring empty containers or containers with dried contents. Place these in your household trash.
