Asbestos:

All forms of asbestos can be sent to our local Wasco County Landfill. Here is the protocol:

  • Must properly fill out ASN4 Form - a DEQ Asbestos Shipment Report Form (Click Here for Form)
  • Fax that form to Waste Connections (landfill owner) at Fax number: (360)-695-5091
  • Once Waste Connections receives (and approves) that form, you will be contacted with permission to bring the asbestos to that landfill.
  • *You need to double-bag the Asbestos, and preferably ‘wet’ it to reduce the possibility of becoming airborne.
  • Wasco County Landfill hours: Monday-Friday, 7am-4pm.
    Phone#: (541) 296-4082.

When transporting: keep products sealed in original containers if possible, and transport in a box or tub in your trunk or in the truck bed. Follow the signage to the collection area. Thank you!
