Household Hazardous Waste Day
Hazardous household waste is collected annually by the Health Department. Notices of the Household Hazardous Waste Day
will be posted on the website and placed in the local newspaper, the Marblehead Reporter, two weeks before the event.
Propane tanks can be brought to Danversport Propane in Danvers, Dawson Hardware in Beverly or to Marblehead's Household Hazardous Waste Day.
- Latex paint is not a hazardous waste. Using a small amount of cat litter or sawdust to dry out residual wet paint, the latex paint cans can then be disposed of, two at a time, in your regular trash.
- Oil-based paint, stains, waterproofers, sealants, etc. should be disposed of at the annual Household Hazardous Waste Day.
