Please continue to check to see if we’re open before loading up for the trip.  We plan to be open normal days/hours weather permitting.

Welcome! We accept curbside recycling items, textiles and many 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:   Whenever we are experiencing extreme weather, please check here, Google Business, our Facebook page or call to hear our outgoing message on our phone line to find out if we’re open.
