Household Hazardous Waste
Many common household cleaning products, paints, pesticides and even motor oil can post a threat to your family and the environment. Even small amounts of these wastes, when disposed of improperly, can pollute ground or surface water and can put humans and animals at risk.

The Southeast Metro Stormwater Authority (SEMSWA) has a contract with Waste Management for the At Your Door Special Collection service, a Household Hazardous Waste (HHW) collection program. This service offers a home collection service for HHW which includes the proper disposal and recycling of leftover household hazardous materials for residents of unincorporated Arapahoe County and the City of Centennial. The County and City can work towards maximizing the recycling of unwanted household materials. For example, all small batteries collected, including rechargeable, one-time-use, hearing aid and watch batteries, are actually recycled into new materials. Most of the materials collected through this program are sent to be recycled. For more information please click on the brochure below.
