Free household hazardous waste disposal

May 24, 2012

Fort Collins residents (commercial waste not accepted) can bring household, hazardous waste to a collection point on campus between 9 a.m. and 3 p.m. on Saturday, June 2. Bring your household batteries, paint, pesticides, mercury-containing items, and more!

Saturday, June 2
9 a.m.-3 p.m.
College Avenue and Lake Street

Colorado State will host the City of Fort Collins' Free Household Hazardous Waste Collection Day, open to all Fort Collins residents.

Residents can drop off unused or unwanted:

  • paint
  • automotive products
  • cleaning/household chemicals
  • pool/spa products
  • pesticides/herbicides
  • household batteries (not car batteries), and 
  • mercury switches (thermostats).

The City of Fort Collins is dedicated to environmental stewardship and wants to keep these hazardous materials out of the landfill and dispose of them properly.

We're unable to accept:

  • explosives
  • asbestos
  • pharmaceuticals
  • bio-waste (needles, bandages)

Mix Paints, a company out of Denver, will be recycling a portion of the useable latex paint collected into new interior and exterior paint for residential and commercial use.
