The Virginia Department of Environmental Quality considers any solid waste that is flammable, corrosive, reactive or toxic as hazardous waste, and it is important to dispose of these materials correctly and keep them out of soil, groundwater, and the County’s landfill.
King George County holds two household hazardous waste collection days a year at our Sealston convenience center, and typical materials include:
Latex paint is not a hazardous material, and if it is dry, can be disposed of as trash at the Sealston convenience center. Removing the lid and mixing any wet paint with sand or kitty litter will speed up the drying process.
You also don’t have to wait for a household hazardous waste day to recycle motor oil, hydraulic fluid or gear oil. All three can go into the used oil tanks at either convenience center. Used anti-freeze can also go into the used anti-freeze tanks at either center.
The following can be recycled:
The following cannot be accepted at the Purkins - Route 205 convenience center:
All of the above items can be disposed of at the Sealston Landfill except propane tanks and non-latex paints.
Yes. Effective December 1, 2017, any King George County resident or property owner using one of the County’s convenience centers or the sanitary landfill to dispose of household waste and/or recyclable material must have a valid county license decal affixed to their vehicle or properly displayed written authorization from the county administrator. According to Section 13-82 of the Code of the County of King George, Virginia, the county license decal must be “properly affixed on the vehicle windshield to the right of the state inspection sticker.”
No, all services at the facility are free of charge to residents of King George County, as long as they are not business related, and delivered in a non-commercial vehicle.
Unfortunately, we are not able to grant this type of exemption.
This is possible, but only by special pre-approval by the Director of the Department. The approval will be event specific, and not open ended. Please contact Mike Newchok at 540-775-3267, or by email at email@example.com, for further information.
If you do not have a county license decal, one can be obtained from the County Commissioner of the Revenue’s office at 10459 Courthouse Drive, Suite 101, King George, VA 22485. Their office phone number is (540) 775-4664, and their hours of operation are 8:00 AM to 4:30 PM, Monday through Friday.
