Veolia Colorado Household Hazardous Waste Recycling Center

The Veolia Colorado Recycling Center is available to Adams and neighboring county residents year-round by appointment. Many household chemicals pose a serious health/environmental hazard if not handled, stored and disposed of properly.  We are proud to recycle most of the chemicals we collect, keeping them out of our natural environment.

The Center is open from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. Wednesdays and Saturdays. To make an appointment, gather your unwanted household chemicals and call 303-526-8155, or book an appointment online.  The pricing for disposal is located below and is a direct transaction between Veolia and you.

Conditionally Exempt Small Quantity Generators will be required to sign a VSQG certification form. Businesses that acquire hazardous chemicals and need to recycle/dispose of them properly can also use the facility.
