Welcome! We accept curbside recycling items and some hard to recycle items (some with a fee), but we also have tons of free items for reuse.   We hold document shredding, latex paint and household hazardous waste collection events a few times per year for residents of our member towns: Boylston, Holden, Paxton, Princeton, Rutland, Sterling and West Boylston.  Read on for more information, send us a message, give us a call, or check out our Facebook page.

We are NOT a transfer station or brush dump.  DEP regulations prohibit us from accepting kitchen/picnic/food trash or lawn/brush waste or creosote lumber.

Site Closing: If the heat index-real feel is 95 degrees during planned open hours, we will be closed.  If we are currently experiencing a thunder storm we may close until its safe to be working outside.

Site Entry: Everyone must go through Check In.  Please have your face masks on as you approach the Check In station.  You may remove it while outside.

ReUse Building Entry:  Masks must be worn inside the ReUse building.   We currently allow 20 people at a time into the building for 15 minutes at a time.

ReUse Building Drop Off:  Drop off is at MIBOX drop off along the exit road.   Items MUST be boxed and have closed lids.  Please read the post below: ReUse Building.
