Household Hazardous Waste Community Collection Days (Residential Pickup)

The City of Somerville, in collaboration with ACV Enviro, is offering residential pick up of Household Hazardous Waste. Instead of coming to a drop-off site, we are coming to you!

So clean out the garage, empty the basement, and get rid of...

  • Oil
  • Paint
  • Cleaners
  • Antifreeze
  • Poisons
  • Pesticides
  • Batteries
  • Fluorescent Lamps
  • Electronics
  • And more!

How to Register

View the schedule of upcoming dates below and click on the "Request Pickup" link when registration opens.

Please note: Hazardous waste pickup events will take place one Wednesday each month from April to November. Registration is required. A new “Request Pickup” link will be added below 3 weeks prior to each event and will be removed when the maximum number of requests is reached.

Residents may drop off eligible items weekdays between 8:30 a.m. and 12 p.m. or between 1 p.m. and 3:30 p.m. Yard waste, electronic waste, and tires will be accepted. Note that yard waste cannot be in plastic bags. Proof of residency, such as a driver's license or utility bill, is required and must be presented at the guard shack. Drop-off will be open to residents only, not contractors. The City reserves the right to refuse drop-off for any reason.

Residents are required to wear a mask and observe all City COVID-19 protocols during drop-off.
