Lead Paint and Paint Chips
Wood painted with lead paint needs to be disposed of in a lined landfill. Johnson, Stowe and Worcester Drop Off locations accept this waste as construction and demolition debris. Lead paint chips that have been scraped off wood siding, windows, furniture, etc. are considered hazardous waste. Bring them to a District Household Hazardous Waste Collection Event. Paintcare.org currently collects all leftover paint for recycling. Visit their website for details.
