The event is free to residents of these communities, but pre-registration is required. Each town has a limited number of slots for their residents and appointments will be made on a first-come, first-served basis. Registration by telephone will be taken by participating communities on September 8, 9 and 10, ONLY, according to the following schedule:

The volume of hazardous waste collected is important to the billing process and neighbors are encouraged to pool it so there is a minimum of 7 gallons per car. Unlike previous years, propane tanks will not be accepted. Oil based and lead paint will be accepted, but LATEX PAINT is NOT a hazardous material and will NOT be collected. Latex paint should be dried out and disposed of in the trash. Residents may bring a mercury thermometer to exchange for a digital one. Residents are encouraged to call the numbers listed for more information. Check your town’s web site for other opportunities for HHW collections in the region.

*Wilbraham residents must have a Disposal and Recycling Center permit to participate.
