Household Hazardous Waste Collection

June 13 HHW collection revived

Thanks to the generous community spirit of the South Shore Music Circus, and the support of Cohasset Town officials, the June 13 household hazardous waste collection will proceed after all.  New procedures are in place for everyone's safety.

Hours:  9 am-1 pm   
Location:  130 Sohier St., Cohasset, with gratitude to the South Shore Music Circus for letting us use their parking lot.

Please carefully review rules, authorization / payment guidelines, and lists of acceptable and unacceptable materials here, or download a flyer here.  This will keep the line moving and the staff safe.

Latex paint is NOT accepted. Click here for instructions. 

We regret that residents of non-SSRC towns WILL NOT BE ADMITTED due to expected heavy volume.

The event is hosted by the Towns of Cohasset and Scituate, with help and support from Member Towns that had to cancel their spring collections.  

Call Claire at 781-329-8318 with other questions.  

Thank you for keeping each other and our Home Planet healthy.
