As most of us living in the Denver area are aware, electronics are prohibited from being dropped off in a normal trash can, due to hazardous materials. It’s a real no-no. The same goes for paint. It can be a real hassle to dispose of these items, especially if you want them gone now, rather than waiting for a neighborhood recycling event. That said, a growing number of Colorado businesses and counties that recycle electronics or paint year-round for free or a small charge.
We’ve compiled a list of places and companies that will either pick-up or let you drop-off your stuff throughout the year. If you know of others we have missed, be sure to send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org and we’ll do our best to get it added to the list.
