Today, we’re going to look at how to dispose of all these kinds of automotive waste, including best practices to avoid costly contamination. [Read more…]

NEDT at Work in Sutton
Our Sutton location isn’t only a NEDT Household Hazardous Products Collection Center but also home to all of our commercial services! It has all the same residential services you’d see somewhere like our Westfield Collection Center, but with even more collection and disposal tools for all the types of hazardous waste we accept. Beyond seeing staff help unload your car and process your hazardous waste, you’ll see other NEDT personnel and vehicles handling larger commercial projects in other parts of the facility.
History: Built from the Ground Up for Hazardous Waste
Our Sutton location is the heart of our services, built back in 2007 for our rapidly growing commercial business, especially our massive truck fleet of service, transportation, and clean-up vehicles. The property is 5.62 acres, including our 16,957 square foot headquarters (2,950 SF devoted to office space, the rest being garages, storage, and other working spaces), with the rest dedicated to vehicle parking and landscaping. Truck turnarounds, parking and garages, and trailer storage mean you’ll get a glimpse of many of our B2C services at this location! Learn a bit more about NEDT’s history here.

How does hazardous waste pile up at home? Sometimes, it’s as simple as not reading a label. Certain products can be dangerous to your family and difficult to dispose of, whether you’ve inherited it, bought it, or don’t know where it came from. The first step to dealing with them is reading the warning labels on hazardous household products. And the second step is using that information to make better buying, storage, and disposal decisions. Learn how to do both in this blog. [Read more…]
