Household Hazardous Waste Collection

September 24 @ 8:00 am - 2:00 pm EDT

NVCOG administers a 15-town Household Hazardous Waste collection region for residents of Ansonia, Beacon Falls, Bethlehem, Derby, Middlebury, Naugatuck, Oxford, Prospect, Seymour, Southbury, Thomaston, Waterbury, Watertown, Wolcott, and Woodbury.

HHW events give residents the opportunity to properly dispose of hazardous materials that are commonly used in the home including paint, pesticides, household cleaners, poisons, and chemicals. The goal of the program is to keep potentially hazardous waste out of local landfills and sewers, providing extra protection for wetlands and waterways. Three hazardous waste disposal days are held annually.

This is the third and last event of 2022. It will be held at Prospect Elementary School, 75 New Haven Road, Prospect. There is no charge to residents. Proof of residency, such as a driver’s license, tax bill, or other identification, is required for entrance. There is no need to start a queue before the start time.

Due to the ongoing COVID-19 situation, protocols in effect will include: residents disposing of materials must wear a mask and remain in their vehicle; only one family member per vehicle; collection materials for disposal must be placed in the rear compartment of the vehicle, not the passenger compartment, and containers will not be returned.

There is a cap of 50 lbs. or gallons of waste per resident unless arrangements are made in advance. If you think you might exceed this limit, send an email with your name, address, and type of waste to by Monday before the collection date.
