Prompted by citizen demand, Washington State directed local governments to create plans to manage hazardous wastes produced by households and in small quantities by businesses and other organizations.

The Local Hazardous Waste Management Program in King County is a multi-jurisdictional coalition of agency, city and tribal partners who work together to reduce the threat posed by the production, use, storage and disposal of hazardous materials.
