The Hazardous/Solid Waste & CERCLA Unit serves two distinct clients. On the enforcement side, the Unit represents the Hazardous Materials & Waste Management Division of the Colorado Department of Public Health & Environment. We provide transactional, rule-making, administrative enforcement and litigation support for the enforcement of Colorado’s Hazardous Waste Act and Solid Waste Act, and represent the Division on a variety of environmental remediation matters, including Superfund cleanups.
The Unit also represents Colorado’s Natural Resources Trustees: The Attorney General, the Director of the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment, and the Director of the Department of Natural Resources.
If You Need Help
The Hazardous/Solid Waste & CERCLA Unit provides legal representation to the State, and cannot initiate action on behalf of the public. If you wish to report a solid waste problem, such as improper trash disposal, please contact your county government. If you have a hazardous waste concern, please contact the Hazardous Materials & Waste Management Division’s Customer Technical Assistance Line at 303-692-3320 or e-mail at email@example.com.
