Free Household Hazardous Waste Collection Day Is Coming To Estes Park
The Larimer County Solid Waste Department and the Estes Park Water Department are sponsoring a free household hazardous waste roundup Saturday, June 14, from 9:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m.
The event will take place at the Estes Park Water Department, 577 Elm Road.
The collection is for all household hazardous wastes, including paint-related materials, aerosols, pesticides, flammables, unwanted cleaners and more. Participants should be sure that containers are labeled and not leaking. Different materials should not be mixed together.
Residents who can’t make it to the roundup can use the county’s permanent household hazardous waste facility located at the Larimer County Landfill in Fort Collins. Call 498-5760 for more information about this facility, including days and hours of operation.
Commercial hazardous wastes will not be accepted at the roundup. Businesses needing assistance with hazardous waste disposal should call the Solid Waste Department at the number above.
“This is a great opportunity to dispose of your unwanted household chemicals properly and conveniently,” said Linda Hayden, Larimer County’s hazardous waste manager. “Please plan to come early-we’re expecting a crowd!”
