Danvers is now a participant in a Reciprocal Household Hazardous Waste Day Program. These events are compiled by the Massachusetts Department of Environmental Protection (MA DEP). Participating communities hold "Open" events throughout the year. Reciprocal communities can send their residents to any event. There is a cost for non-residents to participate in these "Open" events and pre-registration may be required. Please refer to the Household Hazardous Waste Day Reciprocity Schedule for specifics and contact the community whose event you are interested in attending.

Construction and demolition debris (C&D) cannot be brought to the Transfer Station for disposal. The closest facility for C&D disposal is:

The Danvers Police Department offers drug and needle drop boxes in the lobby of the Police Station for residents to freely discard unwanted or unneeded items.
Household Hazardous Waste is collected once a year in the fall. Items can be brought to the Transfer Station for proper disposal at no cost to residents.
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 refer to the Events page.)
Latex paint is not hazardous. No latex paint will be accepted at Household Hazardous Waste Day. Only oil-based paint will be collected on this day. Latex paint can be dried out (add kitty litter, sawdust or paint hardener) and discarded at the Transfer Station during regular business hours. Because the cans are metal and there is a possibility that the paint may not be completely dry, latex paint is not collected curbside with regular trash.
