SCHEDULE FOR 2021 MIDNEROC HHW SEASON 
 
MidNEROC management will be available on open Saturdays from 8am-2pm at 860-965-1910 to answer any questions. 

The Residential Recycling Center located on Notch Road and the Household Chemical Waste Drop-off Facility located in Willington close for the months December through March.  Both facilities reopen in April.

When hazardous wastes are poured down the sink or toilet, dumped “out back”, poured into a street drain or put out with the trash, they eventually make their way into our water supply.  Bring your household hazardous materials to the MidNEROC Household Chemical Waste Drop-Off Center located on Hancock Road in Willington. There is no charge for the use of this facility by Bolton residents, with proof of residency. The facility is open from 9:00 am to 2:00 pm the first and third Saturday of each month from mid-April to early November.   For further information, call them at (860) 684-3163.
