It happens once a year…Household Hazardous Waste Day! The Town of Danvers will conduct a collection on Saturday, October 7, from 8:00 AM to 12:00 PM at the Danvers Transfer Station on East Coast Road off Route 1 South. Clean Harbors has been selected and will assist as the contractor. This event is NOT a curbside collection – you must bring your materials to the Transfer Station. It’s as simple as popping your trunk.
This collection is FREE for Danvers residents only, and identification is required. Non-residents can dispose of household hazardous waste with a charge and must contact email@example.com for fees and payment details prior to Thursday, October 5 2023. No commercial waste will be accepted. Commercial vehicles will be turned away.
We will accept fertilizers, pesticides, pool chemicals, art supplies, photography chemicals, antifreeze, waste oil (up to 5 gallons), gasoline, household cleaners, drain cleaner, oil-based paints, and stains. For a complete list of household hazardous wastes accepted please review the Household Hazardous Waste Day Flyer (PDF)
We will NOT take propane tanks, NiCad or Lithium batteries, or fluorescent bulbs on this day since residents can bring them to the Transfer Station during regular business hours. Alkaline batteries A-D can be disposed of in your regular trash. We will NOT collect electronics because they are picked up curbside with bulk item stickers or collected during our Zero Waste Recycling Events.
REMEMBER: NO LATEX PAINT WILL BE ACCEPTED AT THIS EVENT. Latex paint can be dried out (add kitty litter or paint hardener) and placed with the lid off in an open bag with your curbside trash or discarded at the Transfer Station during regular business hours. We are asking residents to be particularly diligent when it comes to paint. Only oil-based paint will be collected on this day.
Please note that the Transfer Station will be CLOSED to normal business operations during this event.
Please be prepared to show your driver’s license (identification). Clean Harbors and DPW staff will direct residents during the event. Please place items in your car trunk, SUV or van hatch, or truck bed ONLY. No items will be taken from the passenger section. Residents must remain in their vehicles at all times.
If you have questions, please contact the DPW at 978-777-0001 x3011.
