Household Hazardous Waste

As a resident of Leverett you have access to at least six Household Hazardous Waste collection events each year. Pre-registration is required.

To see the complete list of collection event dates, times and locations, go to http://www.franklincountywastedistrict.org/HHWreciprocal.html .

The minimum fine for illegal dumping is $300 per occurrence and possible revocation of driver's license. We report all illegal dumping and suspicious activity to the police.


Composting

Leverett residents can purchase an Earth Machine backyard compost bin at a subsidized price of $25. The subsidized compost bin can only be purchased at the Solid Waste District office. Visit http://www.franklincountywastedistrict.org/composting.html for information on backyard composting and the District’s office location. The town encourages all residents to remove organic material from the trash and bring it to the transfer station collection program and/or use a backyard compost bin. Approximately 25% of household trash is organic material that can be diverted to a compost collection or compost bin.

Lids must be removed from all containers, this includes your paint cans, too. Latex paint should be completely dry before disposal before you arrive at transfer station. We do not accept oil paint, or stains!
