FOLLOWING THESE SIMPLE GUIDELINES WILL REALLY HELP!

  • Plastic bags are no longer recyclable at the transfer station.
    You can bring little plastic shopping bags to Shaw’s to recycle. Bigger bags will need to go in the trash. Please bring your recycling in bins, boxes or a bag that can be emptied into the large bin.
  • Please wash out your recyclables.
    The crew cannot accept jars with peanut butter still at the bottom, laundry detergent bottles that are dripping soap, etc. If your recyclables are brought in dirty, you will be asked to take them home with you and bring them back clean next week. Simply rinse everything out before you come.
  • Nothing that has or ever had a cord can be accepted for the metal bin.
    This includes small appliances, computers, etc. Ask the driver if what you want to get rid of can go in the truck. If you have any doubts or if the item contains hazardous materials, please call the Solid Waste District at 388-2333.
  • We all like to chat it up with our neighbors at the Transfer Station, especially as Town Meeting approaches. If you want to talk for more than just a minute, please move your car to the other side of the metal bin and stay as long as you want. Sometimes folks get parked in and may be too polite to interrupt your conversation to ask you to move your car so they can get on with their day.
