Paint & Household Chemicals

There are a number of programs and resources to help residents recycle or dispose of household hazardous waste. If these chemicals are not properly disposed of, they can harm sanitation workers, create problems in sewage treatment plants and landfills, or pollute the water or air. Help do your part and take advantage of the opportunities available in and for Aurora residents. 

Drop-off program 
Veolia is currently offering a drop-off program. If interested, go to the Veolia website, https://hhwdisposal.com/colorado/ and book a date to drop off your materials. Residents can also call the Veolia Customer Service and Sales Inquiries, 303.289.4827.

Household Chemical Roundups
 

PaintCare Program

  • Through the FREE PaintCare program, unused paint can be returned to many of the locations where it was purchased. For a complete list of locations and items accepted, visit PaintCareThere are limitations on how much paint you can drop off at each visit, and not all retail stores accept paint for recycling. Contact the store directly to confirm business hours and their ability to accept what you would like to recycle.

  • For larger amounts, mix in kitty litter or paint hardener, which is available at most paint stores. Once dry, it can be thrown away.
