Keep Local Groundwater Free from Chemicals
When spring cleaning you may be tempted to throw away that old can of paint or an almost empty solvent tin or weed killer. Look for hazardous waste receiving centers and protect local groundwater from these chemicals. Check if your city has a Household Hazardous Waste Collection Facility or pick-up program.
Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment has information about Hazardous Waste Collection sites across the state.
