Household Hazardous Waste

Many products used in the home, garden, garage and hobby shop contain hazardous chemicals that can potentially harm the user or the environment.  Anything marked "caution," "keep out of reach of children," "danger," "poison," "hazardous," "flammable," "harmful or fatal if swallowed," "causes severe burns on contact," "do not use near heat or flame," "vapor harmful," "eye and skin irritant," or "use in a well-ventilated area" should be considered hazardous.

Use safety precautions when using, storing, transporting, or disposing of any hazardous products.  When discarding these products, they become household hazardous waste requiring proper disposal.  Bring these items to the El Paso County Household Hazardous Waste Facility.  This program is free to all El Paso and Teller County residents.
