MASWU is permitted to run a facility for the disposal of household (residential) hazardous waste materials. Materials from commercial, industrial, or agricultural sources are disposed of for a fee. Determination for commercial, industrial or agricultural hazardous waste disposal is on a case by case basis. Please call the landfill for more information. Commercial, industrial, and agricultural entities with large quantities of hazardous waste need to find a company that specializes in commercial disposal of hazardous wastes. 
A variety of materials from your home may be brought out to the Household Hazardous Waste Facility for proper disposal.  A general list of HHW products is below.  For more information, take a look at the MASWU Disposal Guide for Household Hazardous Waste. There is a 5 gallon limit to liquids. There is a 50 pound limit to powders. If you have more volume than 5 gallons or 50 pounds, charges will be applied.
