Announcement from Wachusett Earthday
Wachusett Earthday will be accepting Latex/Acrylic paints on the third Saturdays of August, September and October between 9:00 a.m. and noon: the fees will be the same as for other Household Hazardous Waste (see our website:
This drop-off is available to the residents of our seven member towns.
* Please bring ONLY Latex or Acrylic paints
* Do NOT combine paints
* If there is no label or the label is illegible, we cannot accept the container
* Paints not in their original containers are also unacceptable
* Oil or Alkyd based paints will NOT be accepted
If you have any questions prior to the three collection dates (August 21, September 18 or October 16), please call, leave a message and someone will get back to you: 978-464-2854. You should also be able to find answers to many of your questions on our website.
PLEASE: Help us help you dispose of your unwanted latex or acrylic paint by bringing ONLY water based paints and NO oil based paints.
The rest of the site will be open on these three dates as well for normal drop-off and shopping. Visitors are reminded that masks are still required inside the ReUse building, but not in the outside areas. Residents with items to drop off are also reminded that we are still accepting only two boxes per vehicle due to our limited volunteers and storage capacity.
Thank you for your understanding and assistance.

A Message From The Selectboard
In order to avoid any possible conflict of interest, Karen will no longer be involved in PFAS-related matters in town. Moving forward, Richy Bisk will be the lead on PFAS and all discussions, deliberations, and votes will be handled by just Richy and Matthew Moncreaff. Karen’s property at 33 Allen Hill Rd tested above the non-detect level over the winter but was non-detect at the most recent test. Since decisions by the Board may affect Karen’s property values, she was advised to recuse herself. Please direct any questions about this to Town Administrator Sherry Patch at or at 978-464-2102.
