2020 Household Hazardous Waste
Thank you to everyone who sat in line and participated at the
2020 Household Hazardous Waste Event on September 19
The City of Durango and La Plata County hosted a household hazardous waste event in 2020. The event took place at the La Plata County Fairgrounds located at 2500 Main Ave. on September 19th 2020 from 8 AM - 1 PM.
We counted 737 cars total at this event. We expect to have total waste diversion information soon!
Since this event has not been held since 2016, the turnout was higher than we expected.
If you did not get a chance to complete our survey, please do so!
Please note that we listened to your comments and plan to hold this event every other year with the City of Durango
If you still have items that you were not able to dispose of, there are opportunities with paint and oil locally.
Latex Paint: drop off at Kroegers Ace Hardware, Sherwin-Williams, Colors Inc and Lewis True Value in Bayfield
Oils: contact local companies that sell oil and they will accept used oil
