How to Package Household Hazardous Wastes For Transportation

  1. Keep all products in original containers.
  2. Make sure all lids and caps are tight.
  3. Place items securely in box for transport.
  4. Use newspaper or cardboard for filler.
  5. Place leaking containers in additional bags.
  6. Label all boxes and bags.
  7. Do not leave material in unvented vehicle.
  8. Do not smoke near chemicals.

WHAT TO EXPECT:

At the drop-off site, be prepared to stay in your vehicle through the whole transfer process. Upon arrival, you will be directed to a reception area where you will be required to show proof of residency. The type and amount of waste that you have brought will also be checked at that time. You will then be directed to a collection area, where your wastes will be removed from your vehicle. Finally, you will be directed toward the exit.

NEW for 2014:

Latex paint is no longer accepted!

Latex paint can be disposed of as trash if dry. To dry small amounts, remove lid and let the paint dry in the can. For larger amounts, mix in kitty litter or pour one-inch layers of paint in a cardboard box lined with a plastic bag. Stir the paint occasionally to speed drying. Put completely dried paint in the trash.

Prescription Medications

The Westborough Police Department will be present to collect prescription medications.

Do not flush your discarded medications down the drain!

Sharps

As of July 1, 2012 household sharps (needles, lancets, etc..) may no longer be disposed of in the household trash. Westborough residents may bring sharps to the Fire Department (42 Milk Street) between 8AM and 6 PM seven days a week. Sharps must be brought to the facility in a sharps container.

DO NOT BRING THE FOLLOWING:

 LATEX PAINT

 EMPTY CONTAINERS

 SHARPS (needles, lancets/syringes) -- see above

 ALKALINE BATTERIES

Items Not Accepted:

Common Questions

  1. Will any material be refused? Yes. The contractors reserve the right to refuse any material which is not deemed acceptable by the managing site chemist.
  2. What if I can't identify a material? Keep materials in the original containers when possible. A chemist will be present to help with difficult identification.
  3. Will I have to wait in line? Yes. Expect a wait. The DPW gate will open at 7:30 am. Please do not arrive before 7:30 am. The gate will close promptly at 12 noon.
  4. Will I be charged a fee? No, unless you have an unusually large quantity from one household. Contact Health Director Steven Baccari before September 19, at 366-3045 for details.
  5. Do I have to prove I live in Westborough? Yes. Bring your driver's license.
  6. Are businesses excluded from participating? Yes. Only household hazardous waste will be accepted.
  7. Can I bring a neighbor's materials? Yes. Bring a list of the neighbor's materials, and include their name, address, and phone number.
  8. Should I bring empty or nearly empty containers? No. It is o.k. to put these in your regular trash. Please do not bring empty containers to the collection day.
    Please remember, the "best" method of disposal for paints, solvents, cleaners, unrestricted pesticides, hobby supplies, pool chemicals, auto supplies, etc., is proper use. If these types of products are not banned, restricted, or outdated, use according to their label instructions or give to a neighbor to use.

DETOUR - Spring Road - closure Wed Jul 16 (maybe Thur too)

Written by Michael (admin)   
Wednesday, 16 July 2014 06:39

SPRING ROAD CLOSURE

Wednesday July 16, 2014
Thursday July 17, 2014

Dear Residents:

Final paving has been scheduled to begin Wednesday July 16, 2014. Depending on weather conditions, any roads not completed Wednesday will be scheduled for Thursday July 17, 2014. A detour will be in effect during this work. Residents will have access to their homes unless otherwise notified.

We are anticipating that our crews will begin on Wednesday morning on Fox Lane and continue on to Lee Ann Circle. Once Lee Ann is complete, Spring Road paving will begin at the bridge and continue towards Upton Road.

Allow plenty of extra time for your commute in case of last minute changes.

ATTENTION

PARKER ORCHARDS

Parker Orchards is open during construction. Please follow detour signs.
