Are you still hanging on to your VCR or DVD player? Hoping that they will make a comeback like LP's? Do you still have cans of pain that your grandfather kept in the garage for the touchup on the mailbox? It's time to clean out those cabinets, and get rid of the old electronics that have no use. Three Connecticut municipalities are hosting household hazardous waste and electronic recycling events over the next couple of weeks.

First up on the calendar, Brookfield is hosting a household hazardous waste collection event tomorrow, Saturday, September 11, 2021, at Brookfield High School 45 Long Meadow Road in Brookfield, from 9AM to 2PM. You must be a resident of Bethel, Bridgewater, Brookfield, Danbury, Kent, New Fairfield, New Milford, Newtown, Redding, Ridgefield, Roxbury, Sherman, Weston, or Wilton to drop off your junk, and they will be checking ID's for residency.

If you can't make it to Brookfield High tomorrow, Waterbury and Beacon Falls are holding dual collection events on Saturday, September 25, 2021. First, you can bring your old tv's, computers, batteries, lightbulbs, and other items to the Electronics Recycling event at the Macy's parking lot of the Brass Mill Center Mall in Waterbury between 9AM and 1PM, this event is open to all Connecticut residents - but not Connecticut businesses. This event is hosted by the Waterbury Litter and Beautification Commission.

Also on Saturday September 25, Beacon Falls is hosting the Naugatuck Valley Council of Governments household hazardous waste collection from 8am - 2PM, at the Beacon Falls Pent Road Recreation Facility, 100 Pent Road in Beacon Falls.
