During the challenges of the COVID-19 pandemic, the Douglas County Household Chemical Roundup Program has changed course to ensure safety for residents and workers. Come to our new appointment-only pop-up-style event to dispose of all of your household chemicals. This event will be located in the Shea Stadium parking lot at 3270 Redstone Park Circle in Highlands Ranch on Saturday, Dec. 12, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.

To promote safety during the pandemic, appointments are required and can be made by calling 303-269-9448. Appointments for Pop-Up Events will be limited to 200 callers on a first-come, first-served basis. Please wear a mask in consideration for our volunteers. Douglas County participants should bring proof of residency, such as a driver’s license or utility bill and $25 per vehicle to offset the cost of hazardous waste disposal. Please check our website at www.tchd.org/HCRoundup in case of cancellations due to weather.

There is also a Door-to-Door service (primarily for residents unable to attend events) where residents may arrange an appointment to have waste picked up from their homes. Appointments may be made for Door-to-Door at 303-269-9448 for a fee of $25, and are limited to 20 households served per month, starting in November and going through June in Douglas County.

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 prevent the potential of accidental poisonings and fire hazards in the home.

Residents with architectural paint and paint products can now conveniently drop off unwanted paint for recycling year-round at many locations in the Denver Metro Area. The Paint Stewardship Program is operated by PaintCare and is a free option for paint recycling throughout the year at participating retailers. Visit www.paintcare.org for paint drop-off locations.

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

The Household Chemical Roundups are sponsored by: Douglas County; Centennial Water and Sanitation District; Highlands Ranch Metro District; Parker Water and Sanitation District; Plum Creek Wastewater Authority; South Metro Fire Rescue; Town of Parker; City of Lone Tree; Castle Pines North Metro District; Inverness Water and Sanitation District; Cottonwood Water and Sanitation District; High Prairie Farms Metro District; Louviers Water and Sanitation District; Perry Park Water and Sanitation District; Roxborough Water and Sanitation District; and Tri-County Health Department.

In 2019, the Douglas County Household Chemical Roundup Program properly disposed of 475,640 pounds of hazardous materials and an estimated 3,296 households were served. To check the status on this and other upcoming events, go to www.tchd.org/HCRoundup.
