Douglas County Household Chemical Roundup

July 6, 2021 at 9:09 am

The Douglas County Household Chemical Roundup Program has implemented new appointment-only pop-up-style events to dispose of all of your household chemicals. Come to our next event on Saturday, August 14, from 9 a.m. - 1 p.m. in the Shea Stadium parking lot at 3270 Redstone Park Circle in Highlands Ranch.

Appointments for the event are required and can be made by online at www.tchd.org/hcroundup. Appointments for pop-up events will be limited to 200 callers on a first come, first served basis. Please wear a mask if you are not vaccinated and self-screen for symptoms in consideration of our volunteers. Douglas County participants should bring proof of residency, such as a driver’s license or utility bill, and a credit card for the $25 per vehicle admission fee to offset the cost of hazardous waste disposal.

Many common products found in the home may be hazardous and should be used and disposed of carefully. These include motor oil, antifreeze, vehicle batteries, solvents, house and garden chemicals, compact fluorescent lights (CFLs), fire extinguishers, propane tanks, oil-based paint, and gasoline. Proper disposal at the Roundup helps lower the potential for accidental poisonings and fire hazards in the home.

The Douglas County Household Chemical Roundup cannot accept waste from businesses, and is not able to accept radioactive waste, smoke detectors, electronic waste of any kind, scrap metal, oil drums, tires, asbestos, medical waste, sharps, or explosives. Due to the small size of the event, they are unable to accept items they may have accepted in the past, including tires or flares.
