Hazardous Materials Management Facility to reopen its free Reuse Area to the public

Beginning Wednesday, Feb. 3; Appointments are required.

Boulder County, Colo. - The Boulder County Resource Conservation Division’s Hazardous Materials Management Facility (HMMF) is reopening the free reuse area for the public on Wednesday, Feb. 3, by appointment only.

Residents can pick up to 10 items such as paints and stains, household cleaners, lawn and garden products, pool and spa chemicals, and more at no charge. The HMMF offers reusable items that are brought in from other residents that are in good condition to be used for their intended purpose. This also helps to keep these items from being disposed of, and therefore avoids disposal costs for otherwise usable items.

Instructions and rules of use

  • Click on a reuse appointment time slot which is available every 15 minutes.
  • Only two members per household will be allowed into the reuse area and visitors will be limited to one visit per week.
  • Visitors will only have 10 minutes to shop to allow time for check-out and to keep the headcount in the building to a minimum.
  • Please be on time for your appointment and park in the dedicated reuse parking spot.
  • All residents will be required to wear a face covering to enter the building and gloves will be provided by staff to wear while shopping.

In 2019, the HMMF gave away 197,746 pounds of materials accounting for 19% of the materials received at the facility and had 8,137 visitors. If you are working on a home improvement project, the free reuse area is a great place to start before spending money!
