Recycling Directory

We want to help you recycle of (or properly dispose of) hazardous items! Below is information about different programs, the majority of which are run by the City and County of Denver’s Household Hazardous Waste Program.


Household Hazardous Waste

Denver residents (residential homes 7 units or less) can register for one collection appointment per year for items including fluorescent tubes, gasoline, herbicides, and much more. There is a $15 fee and there are minimum requirements for a collection. To make an appointment and learn other details, please visit the City and County of Denver’s Household Hazardous Waste Collection site. The collection bag is large, so you might be able to share one collection with your neighbors, depending on how many materials you have.


Paint Disposal

Colorado is one of a handful of states that participates in PaintCare, a program that provides free/low-cost paint disposal (depending on quantity). Visit their website to find a drop off site.


Electronics Recycling

Electronics Recycling is managed by a partner with the City called Metech Recycling in the Globeville neighborhood. Residents can get an “e-cycle coupon” for heavily discounted rates on items like televisions, monitors, laptops, small appliances, etc. We will also share any information we receive about electronics recycling events on this page and on our Facebook page.


Food Redistribution

For businesses, you can donate excess food, perishable and non-perishable alike, to either Denver Food Rescue or We Don’t Waste. These organizations each work with local sites to redistribute food to those in need. Just give them a call or shoot them an email and they’ll help you make sure your leftover food does not go to waste!

For gardeners, if you grow more food than you and your family can use, consider donating fresh items to GPHC’s food pantry or farm stand, or you can sign up for Fresh Food Connect, a program that will pick up fresh food from your home and redistribute it to those in need!

For individuals and groups, you can donate fresh, frozen, or non-perishable items, including hygiene products, mostly full cleaning products, coffee, and copy paper, to GPHC’s food pantry, or you can also make donations at Metro Caring.
