RE: 2023 Household Hazardous Waste
First $50 of Hazardous Waste is Free. Residents will pay overages
In the past the Wayland Health Department has held an annual Household Hazardous Waste Collection Day (HHWD) for Wayland residents through Clean Harbors. We understand how important it is to properly dispose of household hazardous waste and have held these events at least twice a year for many years. Despite a lot of outreach to Clean Harbors and research into other vendors we have not been able to secure a date for this event in over a year. According to the state, many municipalities are having the same problems with obtaining a vendor to host a HHW event. This is due to a shift to regional HHW collection depot models which at this time there is no ability for Wayland to join one but there may be an opportunity in the future.
We have been able to identify an interim solution and we have made arrangements with NEDT New England Disposal Technologies. Beginning on April 1 and through June 30, 2023, Wayland residents may drop off hazardous waste to their facility and Wayland will cover the cost up to $50.00 per household.
New England Disposal Technology locations:
Location 1: 83 Gilmore Drive, Sutton, MA
Location 2: 190 East Main Street, Westfield, MA
Please check the NEDT website for a list of products they accept and do not accept, pricing, and dates and times of operation.
We urge residents to contact the facility of your choice prior to traveling to confirm posted dates, times of operation, and types of waste accepted. Payment by resident can be made to NEDT in the form of cash or credit card.
