Six New Hampshire towns are jointly sponsoring a Household Hazardous Waste Day Saturday, Oct. 24.

Residents are asked not to bring ammunition, electronics, explosive materials, fire extinguishers, medical waste, radioactive material or smoke detectors.

The event takes place Saturday, Oct. 24, from 9 a.m.-noon, at Hampstead Middle School, 28 School St., Hampstead, N.H. Proof of residency is required. Those dropping off wastes will remain in their vehicles while specialized staff unload from car trunks or truck beds.
