Household Hazardous Waste Day Saturday September 25th

The City of Gloucester will be holding its annual Household Hazardous Waste Day on Saturday, September 25, 2010 from 9AM-12 Noon at the Department of Public Works, (DPW) 28 Poplar Street.

The event, which will be held rain or shine, provides residents with the opportunity to dispose of hazardous materials in an environmentally responsible manner.There is no charge for Gloucester residents to dispose of hazardous waste up to a maximum of 25 pounds or 25 gallons and anything over this amount will require a payment to Clean Harbors. An additional 10 gallons or 10 pounds will be $28, anything over that will be $45 . Contractors may not use Household Hazardous Waste Day to dispose of materials. We will accept a limited number (12) of non-residents who will be responsible to pay Clean Harbors directly for the material they bring.

Clean Harbors Environmental Services will be on site to accept oil-based paints (no latex paint), varnishes, pesticides, gasoline, and other household hazardous chemicals. In addition, residents may dispose of mercury-containing waste, including car batteries, thermometers, thermostats, and fluorescent lamps at no cost. For this Saturday only we will not be accepting tires or scrap metal.

To ensure safety, please adhere to the following handling procedures: leave materials in original labeled containers; tighten caps and lids; place containers in sturdy upright boxes rather than in garbage bags; avoid smoking while handling hazardous materials. Most importantly, do not mix chemicals.
