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!
