Brighton residents can dispose of any unused or leftover chemical products in their home Saturday, Sept. 16, at the 2017 Chemical Roundup. The event will run from 9 a.m. - 3 p.m. at Thornton IMC Facility, 12450 Washington St., Thornton.
Last year, 4,271 households from Adams and Douglas counties participated in the Household Chemical Roundups, disposing and recycling more than 315 tons of household hazardous waste. Help us make 2017 even more successful.
Adams County participants are asked to bring a utility bill, phone bill or driver’s license to verify your address and $25 per vehicle to offset the high cost of hazardous waste disposal.
Products such as cleaners, paints, thinners and pesticides can be a potential danger to you, your family and the environment. Household hazardous waste is usually labeled DANGER, WARNING, TOXIC, CAUTION, POISON, FLAMMABLE, CORROSIVE, or REACTIVE and should be discarded in a safe manner.
Items not accepted at the roundup include: business and commercial waste, radioactive waste, explosive waste, smoke detectors, waste containing asbestos, compressed gasses other than propane, tractor tires and medical waste.
