Deposit the waste into a containment barrel at Kiddie Corner Cabins to complete the quest. The barrel is located near the middle of the three cabins, beside an armor workbench.

Icon ps4.png Upon completion of the quest, an additional Tadpole or Possum badge may not be awarded with the other rewards.[verified] Icon ps4.png After the quest starts, approaching the location where the toxic mutagenic waste spawns can cause the pools that need to be collected to de-spawn, rendering them unobtainable to collect, though the objective markers will still be where they should be.[verified]

  • Solution: Leave the world and log into a new one to reset the quest while it is still active. On checking the new location and objective markers, the pools should have spawned normally. Repeat if they haven't until they do.
