Household Hazardous Waste

For the community and small businesses of Arvada, Rooney Road Recycling Center offers hazardous waste disposal.

Many household chemicals pose serious health risks if not properly handled, stored, and disposed of. Certain chemicals pose a threat to sanitation workers (and anyone who comes into contact with them). They may also threaten ground water and the environment at the landfill.
