Westport Plans Household Waste Collection Day

WESTPORT, Conn. – If hazardous household waste is piling up in your basement or garage, get rid of it Saturday during Westport's annual hazardous household waste collection day.

From 9 a.m. to 2 p.m., residents can drop off a variety of hazardous waste items at the Westport Weston Health District, 180 Bayberry Lane.

"This is an opportunity for residents to clean out their basements and garages of general hazardous materials," Stephen Edwards, director of Westport Public Works, said in a release.

The following are examples of household waste items that are acceptable to drop off: degreasers, gasoline, kerosene, mineral spirits, oil-based paints, paint strippers/thinners, solvents, stains, turpentine, varnishes, wood preservatives, fertilizers, fungicides, herbicides, insecticides, pesticides, bleach and other cleaning chemicals, mercury thermometers, moth balls, pet flea shampoos, photo chemicals, rug shampoos and spot removers.

Ammunition, flares and commercial hazardous waste will not be accepted. Items such as antifreeze, motor oil, batteries, fluorescent light bulbs, smoke detectors and electronics can be recycled at the transfer station on the Sherwood Island Connector during normal operating hours.
