2017 Household Hazardous Waste Collection Day – October 15 (Fall Collection Date for Kent residents – September 23)

NHCOG coordinates two household hazardous waste collection days per year for participating towns. A lot of household items (stains, nail polish remover, brake fluid, etc.) need special disposal. If you dispose of them improperly, you can damage the environment and put your and your neighbors’ health at risk. So take a look around your home and sign up to take advantage of this FREE opportunity. All you need to do is get a ticket from your town hall or RRDD office and show up!
