NOTE: Beginning July 1, 2013 it will be a violation of the solid waste regulations for residents of Colorado to dispose of electronic waste in their trash. While it has been for many years and continues to be violation of the hazardous waste regulations for industry, businesses, and government agencies to dispose of any electronic waste that exhibits one or more characteristics of hazardous waste in municipal solid waste landfills, the "Electronics Recycling Jobs Act" - Senate Bill 12-133 - bans landfill disposal of certain electronic wastes from households.
Instead, households must dispose of waste electonic devices at collection facilities or at special collection events.
