A hazardous materials collection site at Thurston County’s Waste and Recovery Center on Hogum Bay Road has reopened. 

The facility, known as HazoHouse, was closed at 1 p.m. Friday after a worker had a "medical incident," according to county spokesman John Tennis.

It’s usually open on weekends, but it remained closed until 8 a.m. Monday.

The site was inspected over the weekend, Tennis said. He said he could not comment on the worker's condition due to privacy laws. 

HazoHouse is a drop off site for household paint, solvents and other hazardous materials.
