Found in the Chemical Spill special event.
A Toxic Waste is placed randomly on multiple tiles.

The Toxic Waste is an unsplicable public solid pain foreground block which was added as part of the Growtech Pharma update on May 16, 2013.


Being a type of pain block, a Toxic Waste knocks the player back and stings the player until the player stops all motion. A player will die after making contact with a pain block five times in quick succession (recovering from damage takes roughly 5 seconds). The Fireproof mod will not allow the player to take more hits, unlike with lava pain blocks.


  • Several Toxic Waste are spawned randomly after breaking a Toxic Waste Barrel.
  • On August 20, 2015, developer @Seth accidentally handed out the Toxic Waste itself to the public during the seventh day of the Player Appreciation Week (Super Mod Dance Party), resulting in it becoming an acquirable rare item.
  • Being unmovable, Toxic Wastes are unable to be picked up using a Flashback Flan.
