In 2023, Household Hazardous Waste Drop-off events will take place on
Saturday, April 15 and Saturday, October 14
Public Works coordinates with Water Resource Protection and the Sustainability Departments to hold two Household Hazardous Waste (HHW) events per year, in spring and fall. These drop-off days are offered free of charge to South Portland residents for the collection of HHW items which could harm our environment if disposed of improperly.
Upcoming drop-off dates will be advertised several weeks in advance in local newspapers, as well as on this page, South Portland Public Works' Facebook page, in school information packs, and on electronic signs posted around the city.
If you are moving or otherwise unable to wait until our drop-off event, please contact us at 207-767-7635 for more information about the proper disposal of these hazardous products.
Please see flyer below for lists of accepted items (*flyers below may be dated for previous events; we will update them as event dates approach.)
At this time, Electronic Waste is not accepted at the South Portland Transfer Facility, and no drop off events are scheduled.
Computer parts and peripherals can be recycled for free through the Dell Reconnect program offered at Goodwill retail stores throughout Maine.
Many other electronic items can be recycled for free at Staples in South Portland or Falmouth. See their website for more information, here: https://www.staples.com/deals/it-s-recycling-day-every-day/BI3000592#recycle-list
TVs and other electronics not accepted at Goodwill or Staples can be disposed of for a fee by visiting Riverside Recycling in Portland or Casella Transfer Station in Westbrook.
