HHP ONLY events are scheduled for April 24 and November 13 in 2021.    The rest of the site (including the building) will be closed.  Only residents of the 7 member towns may bring HHP.  Please have an ID ready.

Household Hazardous Products (HHP)  – Note – New Fees

If you have more than 25 gallons/lbs or a highly toxic/dangerous item, please contact us via the website or call (978) 464-2854 and tell us:  1. What you have;  2. How much;  3. Container sizes so we can advise you on how to pack safely and schedule a time for you to bring it.

 —> Do not bring Latex or Acrylic paint to HHP days unless it is Alkyd.   You can dispose of non-Alkyd, dried latex paint cans in your regular trash.

—> Do not mix items.   Leave in the original container if possible.  

 —> Please pack items so they can be easily assessed/counted at Check In.   All containers assumed full.

 —> All materials must be placed in your trunk, truck beds or back cargo area. Materials will not be taken from vehicle interiors and no materials may be handed out the window.

—> Containers will not be returned. They are deemed contaminated by whatever you brought in. Plan ahead to gather plastic totes or cardboard boxes you will not want back.   Pour gasoline into another safe container if you want to keep your gas cans.

 —> We cannot accept waste from commercial businesses. Please use personal vehicles for transportation to avoid misunderstanding. If we have reason to suspect the material is from commercial use, we have the right to refuse to accept it.

 —> On these 2 extra Saturdays, the rest of the site is CLOSED.

ALWAYS ACCEPTED ON NON HHP DAYS:  Universal Hazardous Waste items such as fluorescent light bulbs and tubes; household batteries and thermometers and thermostats may be dropped off in Center Circle any day that the site is open to the public.   Car batteries, propane tanks, fire extinguishers, electronics and appliances with refrigerants may be dropped off in the North 40 any day that the site is open to the public (some of these items carry a fee). You do not have to store those items for an HHP collection day.

NEVER ACCEPTED: Prescription medicines, sharps/needles, ammunition, explosives or flares. (Check your town’s websites for information on where to bring them in your town) We also do not accept radioactive material or waste containing PCBs.


Document Shredding


Document Shredding –  There are 3 dates planned for confidential document shredding in 2021:  April 16, June 19, October 16.

Please bring ONLY confidential documents to be shred so we don’t run out of space in the truck.   Please recycle non-confidential materials (envelopes, folders, inserts) in your regular curbside recycling or in our Mixed Paper Recycling container in Center Circle on any day that we are open.

The first 2 boxes are free and fees are $2 for each box after that.
