Household Hazardous Waste Collection Day 

At this time, the Natick BOH is still planning to hold the annual Household Hazardous Waste drop off day.   It is scheduled for Saturday, May 9, 2020 from 9:00 am to 12:00 pm.  This is a rain or shine event.

All safety and social distancing protocols will be followed. Due to the limit of 300 cars we must sell tickets in advance and you must have the ticket with you when you arrive.                                                                                                               No tickets will be sold that day: vehicles without a ticket will be turned away.

Because the Town Hall is not open to the public the following process will be used for ticket sales:

  • If you are a Natick Resident and wish to participate:
  • Send us a check in the amount of $5.00, payable to the Town of Natick. Do not send cash.
  • Be sure to include your return US Postal Service mailing address.
  • Either mail your check or drop it in the drop box at the front door to Town Hall.
  • Address your envelope as follows:    Natick Health Dept. 13 East Central St.    Natick    MA     01760

After we receive your check, we will send your ticket and instructions to you via the US Postal Service.

You must have the ticket with you in the front seat of your car when you arrive that day.

  • The ticket has the location, date and time as well as a list of items that are accepted.
  • Do not get out of your car.
  • If the event does not take place, we will mail your check back to you.

Please call the Health Department office at 508-647-6460 if you need more information.

                              2020 Reciprocal Household Hazardous

                      Waste (HHW) Collection Dates

Unfortunately we do not have new dates for the reciprocal program at this time. This chart will be updated when 2020 dates and information are received.
The Natick Board of Health and the following towns have a reciprocal agreement that allows residents of each town to participate in multiple household hazardous waste collection days.
 If you are a Natick resident this means you now have the opportunity to participate in a partner town’s collection event as seen in the table below.
 Registration:   Note some events require advanced registration.
 Payment:   These events are open to Natick residents on a fee-basis. You will be asked for payment at the event based on the amount of material you bring. Please bring the appropriate form of payment indicated in the Notes column of the table below. Pricing is based on the host town’s contract and will be determined by the contractor. As an example, some contractors charge $35 for the first 12 gallons (liquid or dry equivalent) or $60 for 12 – 25 gallons. 
 Identification: You will be asked to show identification confirming you are a resident of YOUR TOWN.
