Household Hazardous Waste Events

2019 Household Hazardous Waste Collection Events

Eastern Regional Service Board encourages residents of the eastern region to gather their household hazardous waste (HHW) material in preparation for local HHW collection events occuring in June. Please note these HHW events do not accept waste from commercial operators.

Proper disposal of HHW will help prevent hazardous chemicals from products that are poisonous, corrosive, flammable or stored in pressurized containers from contaminating the soil, water, and atmosphere around us. For a list of items generally accepted at the HHW collection events, please click HERE.
