  • Hazardous Spills

    Protect our health: clean spills when they happen.

    The state Model Toxics Control Act (MTCA) requires reporting and cleanup of spills.

    Report spills.

    Report a spill to the Washington State Department of Ecology.

    Common spills include:

    • Vehicle fluids.
    • Lawn and garden chemicals.
    • Oil-based paint.
    • Heating oil.

    When do I have to report a spill?

    Report all spills to Ecology when they happen. Early reporting and cleanup reduces:

    • Spread of contamination.
    • Cleanup costs.
    • The impact to public health and the environment.
