NEW HAVEN, Aug. 14, 2023 — (Pictured): West Haven Department of Public Works administrative clerk Diane Ascenzia, left, and administrative secretary Kara Comfort volunteer at the city’s designated Hometown Day at HazWaste Central in New Haven on Saturday, Aug. 12.
Ascenzia and Comfort gathered data and distributed paperwork from 8 a.m.-noon at the Long Wharf center, which collects and disposes of household hazardous waste, including oil paints, gardening products, swimming pool chemicals, antifreeze, batteries, waste oil and small propane cylinders.
HazWaste is in the parking lot of the South Central Connecticut Regional Water Authority at 90 Sargent Drive, just off Interstate 95’s Exit 46.
The Municipal Planning Committee, composed of representatives from 16 area cities and towns, oversees HazWaste as part of each community’s Hometown Day.
Drivers can drop off hazardous waste for free on Saturday mornings from mid-May through October.
