Hazardous Waste Collection ~ Saturday, April 24 ~ 9 am until 2 pm at the Town of Lexington Landfill

 

The Town of Bedford is pleased to announce the 2021 schedule for the collection of Household Hazardous Products.

The collection will take place at the Town of Lexington Landfill Site at 60 Hartwell Avenue from 9 AM to 2 PM on the following Saturdays unless otherwise indicated—April 24; May 15; June 19; July 17; August 21; Sunday, September 19; October 16; and November 6.

Pre-registration is required, and the event is free of charge to Bedford residents. However, when you attend the event, you must show an ID or utility bill displaying your Bedford address. You may pre-register by clicking the following link or scanning the QR code: https://acv-test-forms.formstack.com/forms/minuteman-

Certain materials are not accepted as household waste at the event. Please view the list of acceptable and unacceptable materials under the Household Hazardous Waste tab on the Health Department’s website – https://www.bedfordma.gov/health-department or call the Health Department for this information.

In an effort to be efficient and to keep costs down, we ask you to come to the event with at least 10 gallons or 10 pounds of waste materials. That is the minimum per car for which we are charged. You can reach this amount by bringing your neighbors’ household hazardous wastes to the event along with yours.

Please always remember these safety tips: ensure waste containers are secured for transport in the rear of your vehicle; never mix chemicals; store different items in different boxes; always leave materials in their original containers; do not smoke while handling or transporting materials.

We hope you will participate in this important program which helps to ensure the proper disposal of hazardous wastes from your home. Please contact the Bedford Health Department at 781-275-6507 with any questions or visit https://www.bedfordma.gov/health-department for additional event information.
