The Rooney Road Recycling Center is made available to Jefferson County residents (and Arvada residents in Adams County) by your local government to use all year long by simply making an appointment. Gather your unwanted household chemicals and call 303-316-6262. The Center is open 8:00 a.m. – 2:00 p.m. Wednesdays and Saturdays.  A small copay is required for household chemical disposal. We recycle close to 90% of the chemicals collected keeping them out of our natural environment.
