DPW hosts household hazardous waste collection Oct. 17


The Department of Public Works is hosting a household hazardous waste collection day on Saturday, Oct. 17, from 8 a.m.-1 p.m. at the DPW facility at 83 Wood St.

The collection is for household hazardous products only. Items should be kept in their original, sealed containers when possible. Households are limited to one trip and 25 pounds of products. This is for Hopkinton residents only (be prepared to show ID). Individuals should wear a mask and remain in their car while a DPW staffer removes the items from the vehicle.

For more information, including examples of items that will and will not be accepted, check the DPW page at the town’s website (hopkintonma.gov) or call the DPW at 508-497-9740.
