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, September 15. Bring your household batteries, paint, pesticides, mercury-containing items, and more!

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:

  • pool/spa products

  • cleaning products
  • household batteries (please, no car batteries - the automotive shop can recycle those!)
  • lawn/yard products, and
  • mercury containing items (such as thermometers and 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)
