Household Hazardous Waste Disposal

Many of the products we use everyday are considered hazardous.  They can be readily identified by certain signals words such as Danger, Warning, Caution, or Poisonous, found on their labels.  These products can be harmful to humans, animals, and the environment if not disposed of properly. Weld County residents can dispose of these products, for free, at one of two facilities operated by the county.


The household hazardous waste facility in Dacono will reopen Friday, December 1, 2017.  We will resume our regular days and hours of operation:  9am-4pm every Friday, and the 1st and 3rd Saturdays of each month.  With the reopening of the Dacono facility, the Greeley facility will no longer be open on Fridays, also effective 12/1/17.

Acceptable Containers & Weight Limit

The Weld County Household Hazardous Waste Program will not accept waste brought to us in containers larger than 5 gallons.  All containers must also be intact, not leaking, and please do not bring your hazardous waste to us in plastic bags.  We must be able to see all waste that is brought in and we will not sort through bags or boxes to determine if your items are acceptable. 

There is a 200 pound limit per drop off, per day of operation, per household.  If you have more than 200 pounds, you will be asked to return on another regular day of operation to bring in the remainder.  

The Household Hazardous Waste Program staff will have full discretion in making these decisions.
