Household Hazardous Waste Disposal

Maynard residents may bring their household hazardous waste to the:

Minuteman Hazardous Products Regional Facility
at the Lexington Compost Facility
60 Hartwell Avenue
Lexington, MA 02421

The facility is open on certain  weekends.   Please visit their website for full details on when the center is open, directions, fees, and what types of materials the facility can handle.

Visit the Minuteman Hazardous Products Regional Facility website for more details.

NOTE: Occasionally the DPW runs a Household Hazardous Waste Collection Day here in town.  Please visit that page for details.  (For 2015 this is scheduled for June 27th.)


General Description of Services of the Minuteman Facility

Residents of Lexington and participating communities may help protect the environment by taking common household hazardous products–ranging from cleaners and photography chemicals to paints, fuels and certain devices– to the Minuteman Facility on Hartwell Avenue in Lexington. Mailings with the complete schedule for the Minuteman Facility are sent to all Lexington residents annually.

Please bring identification and proof of residency with you to the center.

Please do not make multiple trips per event. This slows down the event and it increases the cost to your town, as each town is assessed a fee based on the quantity of material per car brought to the site.

The Minuteman Hazardous Products Facility reserves the right to refuse unidentified materials or unacceptable amounts of hazardous waste.

The facility is open only to residential customers. A separate program for small businesses and very small quantity generators (VSQG’s) is also available.

If you cannot go to any of the Minuteman collections or are moving before the next one, Clean Harbors Environmental, Inc. holds HHW and electronic collections every Saturday from April 1 – October 31 at their Braintree facility.
