If Wayland residents have a large amount of hazardous waste that they have questions about, the Health Department in collaboration with the Fire Department can assist residents in determining which products are accepted at HHWD.  For residents who need help with this process, the Fire Department is willing to conduct a site visit to help residents with questions such as; what can be taken to HHWD, is it safe to bring to HHWD, can it be stored safely and other questions.  Residents should reach out to a neighbor or friend for transporting the products safely to the HHWD event.  For assistance please email us at:  pwhite@wayland.ma.us
