How do I dispose of household hazardous waste?

There is no facility in Montrose for disposing of hazardous waste. Events that the city may sponsor for collecting household hazardous waste, paint, electronics, and similar materials will be advertised in the City Beat newsletter and on the city's website. Hazardous materials and electronic wastes should never be placed in city trash containers. See the Special Waste Disposal page for more detailed information.
