Virtually all households have some household hazardous waste (HHW). HHW is generally defined as a household waste that is toxic, flammable, reactive or corrosive. Common HHW includes paint thinners, spray paint, pool chemicals, pesticides, mercury fever thermometers, and gasoline.

Although the federal regulations do not prohibit a homeowner from disposing of hazardous waste in the garbage, household hazardous waste collection programs provide an opportunity to manage these wastes in an environmentally safe manner.

Hazardous material may be brought to any of these locations.  Proof of Westport residency will be required.

Listed below are some items that can be recycled at the Transfer Station Recycling Center on the Sherwood Island Connector during normal operating hours:

  • Latex & Oil Based Paints, Stains, Varnishes & Urethanes
  • Batteries (any type)
  • Fluorescent bulbs
  • Motor oil & Antifreeze
  • Electronics
  • Textiles
  • NOT ACCEPTABLE — propane tanks, ammunition, explosives, demo debris, fireworks, flares, commercial waste.
