Commercial Hazardous Waste Disposal

Businesses are required to dispose of their hazardous waste in an environmentally sound way. To this end, the Weld County Household Hazardous Waste Program felt it was important to provide a resource for the correct disposal of hazardous waste from businesses. The program can accept waste from Very Small Quantity Generators (VSGQ) or it can provide a valuable resource to those businesses classified as Small Quantity Generators (SQG) or Large Quantity Generators (LQG).

The Weld County Business Hazardous Waste Disposal Program provides a safe and affordable disposal/recycling option for VSQGs in Weld County. This voluntary program is fee-based and operated at the Weld County Household Hazardous Waste Facility in Greeley. 

Hours and Location

The Weld County Business Hazardous Waste Disposal Program will accept waste by appointment only and only at the Greeley facility.

For appointments or questions, please call (970) 400-2217.

*Waste must be in 5 gallon containers or smaller.
