Eagle County Household Hazardous Waste
Use these tips to ensure proper disposal of household hazardous waste:
- The safest way to dispose of household hazardous waste is to use the product until it is completely gone.
- If you can’t finish the product, share with neighbors, friends or professionals who may have use for it.
- Read product labels for specific disposal instructions. If stated, follow manufacture’s directions for proper disposal.
- If not stated or if you are unsure about proper disposal of a product, contact the manufacturer or call the HHW Facility at 970-328-3463.
- Recycle the material whenever possible. If not recyclable, bring it to the HHW/CESQG facility.
Eagle County residents may dispose of their household hazardous waste by bringing it to the HHW Facility. Anyone living in their own home, apartment or condominium may dispose of residential household waste at no charge up to 20 items.
