Transfer Station & Recycling

 
The Solid Waste Division is responsible for monitoring, collecting and disposing of solid waste, hazardous waste, bulky waste, yard waste and recyclables. The division provides a solid waste and recyclable collection service for municipal buildings, recreation areas and conservation areas.

Solid waste and the landfill are monitored for compliance with DEP regulations and is partially self-supporting through various fees from collections, recyclables and drop-offs that are submitted to the Town to offset annual costs for operation and debt service.

We will be selling decals for Fiscal Year 2025 on Saturday June 22 and Saturday June 29 in the DPW Garage. Drive through with your vehicle registration and license (if over 60) and cash or a check.  If you would like two decals, be sure to bring the second vehicle registration.

Massachusetts Waste Bans

Waste bans are prohibitions on the disposal and transfer for disposal of certain toxic and/or recyclable items.  Waste bans are intended to encourage reuse and/or recycling of certain waste materials, conserve disposal capacity, and reduce adverse environmental impacts from waste materials containing  toxic substances. Please click here for the Massachusetts Waste Ban Fact Sheet . Beginning November 1, Mattresses and Textiles will be added to the list of items prohibited from being deposited into landfills and incinerators.
