Posted by Ralph Ranalli July 27, 2007 02:56 PM


Residents can bring get rid of their old motor oil, pesticides, and bleach at Household Hazardous Waste Day July 28 from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the Adams Middle School. Other accepted items include antifreeze, batteries, mothballs, oil-based paint, pool chemicals, and rodent killers.

Some unsafe items, such as explosives, medical waste, and pressurized fire extinguishers, will not be accepted. Also, no latex paint will be accepted because it is non-hazardous and can be dried out and disposed of in regular trash.

More information is available at the town’s web site, townofholliston.us.
