Whether it’s poisonous, environmentally harmful or just unhealthy, you can get it out of your home on Saturday, June 1 — chemical cleaning materials and containers, pesticides, paint strippers (but not paint) and the like — can be dropped off on Darien’s Household Hazardous Waste Day on Saturday, June 1.

You also can participate in other events nearby (and avoid that weekend’s traffic), on other weekends if you’re unable to attend this one.

Remaining Household Hazaredous Waste days available to Darien residents (not shown: Greenwich and Weston — their collection days have already passed). Expect some traffic on major roads as you drive to the site on Saturday (or go to some other dropoff day in one of these communities). The earlier in the day, you leave, the less traffic you can expect. And shorter lines.
