HOLYOKE, Mass (WWLP) — Some household products can threaten the environment, and threaten your health if you don’t dispose of them correctly.
It’s also illegal to pour certain cleaning products down the drain or throw them in the trash, which is why the DPW in Holyoke helped residents safely dispose of those products on Saturday.
The Household Hazardous Waste Collection took place at 63 Canal Street in Holyoke. Residents were allowed to bring up to10 gallons of hazardous waste per household.
The DPW accepted any pesticides, metal polishes, spot cleaners, fluorescent light tubes, antifreeze, and brake fluid during Saturday’s waste collection. Residents could also bring moth balls, photo chemicals, rechargeable batteries, and pool and spa chemicals.
