Danvers residents will be able to get rid of materials they can't throw away in the regular trash as the town holds its annual household hazardous waste drop-off.

The collection, scheduled for Saturday, Oct. 23, will be held on East Coast Road from 8 a.m. to noon, said a release from Gail Bernard, Danvers' Department of Public Works program director.

Waste accepted in the collection includes fertilizers, pesticides, pool chemicals, art chemicals, photography chemicals, antifreeze, household cleaners, gasoline, drain cleaners, oil-based paints, and propane tanks, according to the release.

Electronics will not be accepted at the drop-off because they can be collected at the Danvers Recycles event on Nov. 6 and 7 and can also be picked up curbside, the release said.

Because this event is only open to Danvers residents, those dropping off waste must present identification proving their residency. Commercial vehicles will also be turned away.

Danvers enlisted Clean Harbors, an environmental, industrial, and energy services provider, for the effort. Last year's collection serviced more than 300 households, the release said.
