Household Hazardous Waste Event for El Paso County Residents

Tell your friends and family about the Saturday, June 2, event that allows El Paso County residents and residents from surrounding areas to drop off their Household Hazardous Waste (HHW) for free. 

Household Hazardous Waste (HHW) is defined as anything that is toxic, flammable, reactive, or explosive. Many household materials fit this description such as pesticides and oil. For safety and environmental reasons, hazardous waste always requires special handling and disposal. Since El Paso Disposal is not licensed to haul hazardous waste, we encourage residents to take advantage of this event.
