Welcome to Centers and Squares

As a Cambridge real estate agent, the city squares of Cambridge, Somerville and Medford and the town centers of Arlington, Watertown and Belmont, Massachusetts are my home turf. And as a lifelong New Englander who’s lived within twenty miles of Boston most of my life, I can introduce you to other nearby towns as we search for your new home. If you’re planning to sell your home in Cambridge, MA or nearby you’ll find plenty of info about the home selling process here too. Questions? Send me an email or call me at 617-504-1737.

Hazardous Waste Disposal in Cambridge

What to do with all these household chemicals?

What to do with all these household chemicals?

Several times a year the Cambridge DPW holds Hazardous Waste Days where Cambridge residents can bring household hazardous waste for disposal. 

I’m always impressed with the job the Public Works Department does during these collections.  Hazardous Waste Days are held at the National Guard Armory near Fresh Pond rotary on Concord Ave and are very well attended. 

The last collection was held in June and there isn’t another one scheduled until October 3, 2009.  What to do in the meantime?  If you’re moving and need to get rid of those old paint cans, the discarded tires in the garage, or the propane tank from the barbecue what’s the answer?

Well, luckily there is another option if you can’t wait until October.  The Minuteman Hazardous Products Regional Facility at 60 Hartwell Avenue in Lexington MA is open to residents from other towns for a fee.  In fact, some local towns have arrangements for residents’ use of the Lexington facility without charge.  Check the website for details.

Time to rethink our dependence on chemicals

Future collection days in Lexington:

  • Sunday, September 20, 2009
  • Saturday, October 17, 2009
  • Saturday, November 7, 2009

Be sure to check out both websites for directions on what to bring, how to bring it, and what not to bring.  Hazardous waste disposal is tricky – the more hoops you jump through the more you realize that the sign on the right sums it up – it’s a lot easier to not accumulate these hazardous chemicals to begin with.
