The next Household Hazardous Waste Drop-off event will take place on

Saturday, October 22, 2022 


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.)

Electronic Waste

At this time, Electronic Waste is not accepted at the South Portland Transfer Facility, and no drop off events are scheduled.  Most Electronic Waste can be disposed of by visiting Riverside Recycling in Portland or Casella Transfer Station in Westbrook. 

Computer parts and peripherals can be recycled through the Dell Reconnect program offered at Goodwill retail stores throughout Maine at no charge. 

For more information, please call our office at 207-767-7635.
