The Metropolitan District Commission will be collecting household hazardous waste in West Hartford on Sept. 21.
On Saturday, Sept. 21, from 8 a.m.-1 p.m., the MDC will hold a Household Hazardous Waste Collection at the West Hartford Department of Public Works, 17 Brixton St. 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 Sept. 21, and MDC will handle the rest. Typical items are kitchen cleaners, garage and workshop chemicals, and yard insecticides and hobby solvents, to name a few. For a complete list, click here.
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.
