Saturday, October 22nd is Household Hazardous Waste Day. Bring it down to the D.P.W.

This is not the place for leftover wood finish.  Ever.   Wood finish is a hazardous waste and storm drains lead to the beach. Take all your hazardous waste to the Lynn Household Hazardous Waste Day

Got old oil paint, brake fluid, motor oil, pesticides you have decided not to use anymore?  Bring them all down to D.P.W on Saturday, October 22, 2016.  You can get rid of 3gallons or up to 3 lbs for only $20.00 or up to 25 gallons for only $47.00, thanks to the City of Lynn and Clean Harbors Environmental Services subsidizing the disposal cost.  See the flier attached for all the types of waste you can and cannot bring, and how to bring them to us.

The City of Lynn holds two per year, and the next Household Hazardous Waste Day won't be until May 13, 2017.  So, lighten your load, clean out that cellar and garage and get the toxins out.

Here is the Clean Harbors Set up at DPW for Household Hazardous Waste Day.
