Recycling options in Centennial

Christmas Trees:

The City of Centennial, Arapahoe Park and Recreation District and South Suburban Parks and Recreation District are providing residents with an opportunity to appropriately and safely dispose Christmas trees.

Hazardous Materials:

  • The City, SEMSWA, and Arapahoe County partner to provide household hazardous waste pick-up disposal to City of Centennial and unincorporated Arapahoe County residents. This service is provided by Curbside, Inc. Funding is provided by SEMSWA and a resident co-payment of $20.  Items collected by this program include used motor oil, antifreeze, paint, batteries, pesticides, herbicides, solvents, acids, and other household chemicals. To schedule a pickup, contact the toll-free hotline (1-800-449-7587) or visit the website.
  • WM At Your Door can also offer similar services to businesses, although rates may differ.  


  • SB 12-133 banned the disposal of electronic waste in Colorado landfills. The City does not currently have a program for residential recycling of electronics, although there are multiple private entities that will dispose of electronics. A sample of these include:
    • The State of Colorado offers a search program on their website.
    • Best Buy – accepts tube TVs and monitors up to 32”, flat panel TVs and monitors up to 60 inches, various peripheral electronics including DVD players, home audio, cell phones, MP3 players, and computers. Disposal is generally free of charge, and Best Buy may offer credit for certain items.
    • Staples – accepts computers, printers, shredders, small electronics, DVD players, external hard drives. Disposal is generally free of charge.
    • Goodwill Industries of Denver - Electronic Recycling Program - Useable electronics will be refurbished and resold in Goodwill stores and online. Unusable or non-repairable electronics are demanufactured for recycling and recovery. 
    • Other private companies, such as Techno+Rescue, Metech Recycling, and Electronic Recyclers, among others, offer a combination of paid and free of charge services.  
    • Neighborhoods and community groups will often hold recycling events in partnership with a private vendor. Interested residents may consider contacting their neighborhood association or a private company to coordinate an event.
