City of Colorado Springs / Stormwater / Hazardous Waste Management

Hazardous Waste Management

Hazardous materials entering our streams can have a detrimental impact on the stream's health. Water quality may degrade, aquatic habitat may disappear, and aquatic life can vanish.

Our community can take an active role in protecting our streams. Examples of ways to get involved include:


  • For more information on local recycling centers, please click here.



  • Become familiar with the proper usage of pesticides and other household hazardous wastes. Contact the City's Stormwater Drainage Team at (719) 385-5980 to request brochures on pesticides and on other household hazardous wastes.



  • Ensure prompt clean up of spills. Hazardous material spills requiring non-emergency assistance from the Fire Department can be obtained by calling the City's dispatcher at (719) 444-7000. Emergencies should be directed to the Fire Department by calling 911.
