Household Hazardous Waste Collection to be Held Today in Old Lyme

OLD LYME — The Lower Connecticut River Council of Governments (River COG) participates in regional recycling coordination and waste management, offering multiple household hazardous waste collections from April to October each year.

River COG has closed its permanent Household Hazardous Waste (HHW) collection facility in Essex. Instead of using that location, River COG will now hold collections throughout the RiverCOG region at sites in Old Lyme, Clinton, East Hampton, Cromwell, Higganum, and Middletown.

The next Household Hazardous Waste (HHW) collection is in Old Lyme tomorrow, Saturday, June 18, from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. in the Lyme-Old Lyme (LOL) Middle School parking lot.

Drop-off is a drive-through process with occupants staying in their vehicles while workers take the materials out of  cars/trucks.

Visit this link to view the 2022 HHW brochure for details of when each site will be open and products that will be accepted.

All dates and locations are open to all residents of the 16 participating towns (Chester, Clinton, Cromwell, Deep River, Durham, East Hampton, Essex, Haddam, Killingworth, Lyme, Middlefield, Middletown, Old Lyme, Old Saybrook, Portland and Westbrook).

The next HHW collection will be held in Cromwell on July 16.

The next Paper Shredding event (for residents only, not businesses, with a limit of five bags) will be held June 25, at  Westbrook Town Hall.
