This Saturday, July 21st, is your next opportunity to safely and legally dispose of your household hazardous waste. Household hazardous waste refers to certain items that should not be put out for normal trash collection, such as car batteries, chemical cleaners, insecticides, weed-killers, and motor oil. Proper disposal of these items helps protect public health and the environment. For a complete list of what is and is not accepted, please visit the Department of Public works webpage.
Collection will occur on Saturday between the hours of 9 a.m and 1 p.m at the Field Street Parking Lot at Danehy Park, on Field St at Fern St. The event is free to Cambridge residents. Proof of residency will be required. The next household hazardous waste collection will happen on October 20, so plan accordingly.
