Household Hazardous Waste
Hampstead residents have the opportunity to responsibly dispose household hazardous waste (HHW) twice a year. Each spring and fall we participate in event.

Please see below for what is accepted at HHW events. But as a rule of thumb, products that have the following words on them are accepted: caution, toxic, combustible, poison, flammable, warning, danger.

And please note – Latex Paint is NOT a hazardous material. You can dispose of this curbside if the paint is hardened (mix paint with sand or kitty litter and give time to set).
Please stay tuned for the next HHW event.
