Household Hazardous Waste
The next La Plata County/City of Durango Household Hazardous Waste Event is scheduled for Friday September 23 (commercial drop off) and Saturday, September 24 (residential drop off).
More details will be posted here as we get closer to the date.
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. Since this event had not been held since 2016, the turnout was higher than expected.

Please note that we listened to your comments and plan to hold this event every other year.
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 to see if they will accept used oil
