Common household hazardous waste products include items such as fluorescent bulbs and tubes, home cleaning products, home maintenance products, motor oil and antifreeze, paint, and yard and garden care products. The Hazardous Materials Management Facility accepts wastes from residents and businesses from Boulder County, City and County of Broomfield, and the Town of Erie. Residential waste from outside of our service area will be charged an Out of County Fee of $45.
Hazardous waste disposal for businesses is by appointment only for businesses in Boulder and Broomfield counties that generate small quantities of hazardous wastes. Fees for the service are based on waste management costs for the type and weight of waste delivered, plus surcharges for overhead and construction.
