The Metropolitan District Commission will host its fall Hazardous Waste Collection Day in East Hartford at the MDC’s Facility at 65 Pitkin Street on Saturday, October 6, 2018 from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. This is a great opportunity for residents to dispose of hazardous wastes that cannot be put in trash receptacles or taken to the East Hartford Transfer Station.
