Print free labels
Businesses that need to label their dangerous waste can print them for free. Click the label you want from the categories below and print from your computer.
You may need to adjust your print settings to make the text large enough to meet label size requirements:
- Hazard labels must be visible from 25 feet away,
- The letter size must be at least 0.5 (half) inch tall.
Dangerous waste labels
These labels communicate the risks associated with your waste. More than one risk may apply to the same waste.
Hazardous or non-hazardous
The labels below can be used to identify whether a waste is hazardous or non-hazardous. If you use the hazardous waste label, be sure to apply additional hazard labels or markings.
Other waste labels
We provide a variety of other labels that may apply to more specific waste types or waste labeling situations.
- Universal waste: Batteries, lamps, mercury-containing equipment, and mercury thermostats
- Auto waste: Used oil, used oil filters, spent antifreeze
- Accumulation start date
- Satellite accumulation area
- Episodic dangerous waste event
- Excluded solvent-contaminated wipes
- State-only dangerous waste

Some other labeling systems may be used if they clearly convey the hazard(s) associated with the waste:
- Department of Transportation (DOT)
- Globally Harmonized System (GHS)
- National Fire Protection Association (NFPA)
- Hazardous Materials Identification System (HMIS)
Not all of these labels will meet the requirements of the Washington Dangerous Waste Regulations. Contact your regional inspector if you are unsure.
