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 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 actual temperature or 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. We accept only 2 boxes per car and the boxes must have closed lids. Please read the post below: ReUse Building.
Yes! We need your help
As an almost completely all-volunteer operation, we rely on our volunteers to keep the site open. Please consider helping out, if only for one slot/week (or month). We are friendly, welcoming folks.
