What can I do with old paint, used motor oil, and other chemicals?

Latex paint can be dried out (solidify with kitty litter or with specifically designed products that are now available) and placed in the trash. Oil based paints, chemical and other household hazardous waste should be brought to the Town's annual Household Hazardous Waste Collection day. For more information, call the Department of Public Works 781-942-9077.
