The Household Hazardous Waste Drop-off Day that was scheduled for May 30th for New Bedford, Dartmouth, and Freetown residents has been canceled. Below are some tips to help residents handle certain items.
• If you have hazardous waste such as oil-based paints, paint thinner, pesticides, or gasoline, please secure it so that children and pets cannot reach it.
• Latex paint is NOT accepted at household hazardous waste day. If you have latex paint that you cannot use up, dry it out and throw it away in the regular trash.
• There are many items NOT accepted at household hazardous waste day that you may be able to take to your Transfer Station such as motor oil, antifreeze, fluorescent light bulbs, TVs, and propane tanks. New Bedford residents with questions about what is accepted at your Transfer Station, please call the Department of Facilities & Fleet Management at (508) 979-1520. • Dartmouth residents, please call the Dartmouth DPW at (508) 999-0740.
