Hazardous/Solid Waste & CERCLA Unit

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 comments.hmwmd@state.co.us.
