Council unanimously approved an intergovernmental agreement between the city and Tri-County Health Department for the Household Hazardous Waste Program. Utilities Director Jim Landeck said under the agreement,  the City of Brighton will contribute$12,000 for the disposal of household chemicals and hazardous waste from residential homes.

“This particular program is well received by the community; provides them with an opportunity to remove these hazardous chemicals, toxins, pesticides and other chemicals from their homes,” he said. 

Last year, 874 households in Adams County utilized the program, with 102 of those households coming from the Brighton Community. This year’s Household Hazardous Waste programs have been scheduled for May 3 at Waterworld in Federal Heights and Sept. 19 at the Thornton Maintenance Facility.
