The Walpole Board of Health has announced a new date and time for its annual household hazardous waste collection. On Saturday, July 25, from 8:00 a.m. until 11:00 a.m., residents can bring hazardous materials to the Fisher School for disposal. Those dropping items off must stay in their car and wear a mask.

For $10, people can bring up to 25 gallons or 25 pounds of hazardous waste or televisions and monitors up to 26" (diagonal). For $25, people can drop off televisions and monitors up to 39" (diagonal). People can drop off televisions over 40" (diagonal) for $75.
