Household Chemical Roundup

Tri-County Health and the Town of Parker will hold a Household Chemical Roundup on Saturday, May 21 from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the Parker Joint Services Center (17801 E. Plaza Drive).

This event is open to all Douglas County residents; participants are asked to bring proof of residency, such as a driver’s license, and $25 per vehicle to offset the high cost of hazardous waste disposal. To decrease wait time at the event, residents are encouraged to register in advance at
www.TCHD.org/250/Home-Chemical-Waste.

As a reminder, dumping of any waste into the storm drainage systems is considered an illicit discharge and a Municipal Code violation. Please do your part by disposing of waste properly and protecting the environment.

To dry out latex paint, mix kitty litter, sand, sawdust, dirt or any other absorbent material with the wet paint and allow it to dry in an area inaccessible to children and pets.
