Transfer Station/Recycling/Brush Collection

Transfer Station Entrance

***Update July 29, 2020***


The Swap Shed at the Transfer Station remains closed as a result of the pandemic.  

The Town has maintained essential services throughout the pandemic and is carefully evaluating the reopening of non-essential services.  The DPW in consultation with the Board of Health and the Select Board will continue to review protocols and determine when the swap shed can reopen safely.

In the meantime, we encourage residents to use the Transfer Station's recycling and waste disposal services.  To limit the risk of exposure for other patrons and staff, we ask that you please maintain social distancing and wear face coverings when unable to do so.  

We appreciate your patience and cooperation.
