Special Events
Paper Shredding Program

Saturday, September 10, 2016
9 a.m. to 1 p.m.
Shredding event
Norman Smith Service Center
3001 W. 124th Ave. (just east of Lowell Boulevard)

Broomfield's Environmental Services division partners with Shred-It, one of the world's largest document destruction companies, to provide this free service. Bring your confidential medical, tax, bank documents, etc. for safe and secure on-site destruction. Limit of three boxes (banker's or copy paper-sized boxes weighing no more than 35 lbs. per box) per vehicle.
  • No separating required
  • Clips and staples are okay
  • Paper only, please!
  • No other recyclables

Did you shred at home and need to dispose of the paper? Shred-It will also take up to three 32-gallon trash bags of shredded paper per vehicle.

Remember—you only need to shred sensitive information. Shredded paper can be recycled by some processors, but is not as valuable as larger sheets of office-type paper. Broomfield's Environmental Services suggests that consumers tear off the small portion of the page containing the sensitive information and recycle the remaining portion.

Household Hazardous Waste Collection Day

Saturday, October 1, 2016
9 a.m. to noon 
Norman Smith Service Center
3001 W. 124th Ave. (just east of Lowell Boulevard) 

This FREE event is for Broomfield residents only, and participants must have an appointment. Residential waste only (no business or commercial waste) will be accepted.  Call 303.438.6334 to schedule an appointment after September 6.

Many products used around the home contain hazardous ingredients and need to be used and stored safely. These products include non-water-based paint, stain and varnish, motor oil, cleaning solvents, pesticides, weed killers, antifreeze, rechargeable batteries, gasoline, aerosol cans, waxes, and wood preservative. Once these products are no longer needed, they become HHW that require proper disposal. See a more detailed list of items to bring to this event. 
This is a great opportunity to dispose of your old electronics. Recent state law prohibits any electronic waste from entering a landfill. A maximum of five of each type of electronic component will be accepted from each household.
