Here are 3 Items That are Illegal to Throw Away in Colorado
Believe it or not, there are plenty of rules that govern what you can and can't throw away in this country, even in Colorado. This isn't a recent development, but it never hurts to get a refresher on the rules every now and then.
The next time you're headed to the curb with your garbage can, you may want to stop and double-check that you don't have any of these 3 types of items that are illegal to throw away in Colorado. You can save yourself some headaches and fines.
So, I'm not entirely sure that we needed to be told this, but it is illegal to throw ammunition in the garbage in Colorado, nor is the dumpster an acceptable repository for explosives. Again, some things feel like they should go without saying, though I must admit I'm curious how many landmines Colorado garbage collectors actually accepted before they felt the need to put a stop to it. I would think the first time would be one too many, to be honest.
Medical and Bio-waste ending up in Colorado garbage cans are also frowned upon. This particular category would also apply to any sharps - things like hypodermic needles and other similar items. If your weekend plans included climbing into a garbage can and stabbing yourself repeatedly, you may want to see a movie instead.
Recycle Those Electronics
You are probably well aware of the fact that it is illegal to throw away old electronics and most kitchen appliances in the state of Colorado. Particularly with electronics, many have components that can cause environmental damage for the remainder of most of our natural lives, so they should be disposed of more delicately than tossing them in a landfill.
