Each spring and fall, the MDC conducts a regional household hazardous waste collection program at a series of local sites in member and non-member towns. The program offers a number of benefits to residents and municipalities:

  • Residents have the opportunity to participate in a collection day in their respective towns as well as in other collections throughout the year.
  • Participating municipalities enjoy financial savings from the effect of pooling under a single contract the services of a licensed hazardous waste management firm.
  • The contractor assumes full responsibility for the collection, transportation and proper disposal of hazardous waste items.

Hazardous waste cannot be simply thrown out with the trash, flushed, or poured down the drain because it passes the problem along to the environment, polluting the air and the water.  So the MDC sponsors a Hazardous Waste Program to collect the waste and dispose of it through safe, environmentally responsible practices.
