Household Hazardous Waste will be collected in West Hartford on Saturday, Sept. 30.


Twice a year, the Metropolitan District (MDC) provides its customers with an environmentally-friendly initiative, the Household Hazardous Waste Collection (HazWaste) program. The MDC collects hazardous waste and disposes of it through safe, environmentally responsible practices which in turn protects the health of our communities and the environment.

On Saturday, Sept. 30, 2023, from 8 a.m. until 1 p.m., the MDC will hold a Household Hazardous Waste Collection in West Hartford at the Public Works Garage, 17 Brixton Street. The event is free and open to MDC member communities.

Collect your household waste items in their original containers, place them in a box and bring them to the collection site on September 10, and MDC will handle the rest. The entrance is at the end of Oakwood Avenue just past Brixton Street. There will be ample signage. Remember to bring ID!

Typical items are kitchen cleaners, garage and workshop chemicals, and yard insecticides and hobby solvents, to name a few. Click here for a complete list.

West Hartford residents have the option to take household hazardous waste to any MDC collection event in the region. For a list of locations and dates please see the MDC website. The next West Hartford collection will be held in June 2024.

Remember these tips:

  •  Do not mix different products together.
  • Do not smoke in your car or near the collection area.
  • Be prepared to wait between 5 and 30 minutes. Bring something to read for yourself and a game or toy to entertain your child.
