Specialty Recycling and HHW Disposal Opportunities

The Town offers two events per year for residents to purge their homes of all hazardous waste, tires for recycling, electronic waste recycling, metal recycling, and document shredding recycling. These events are held in the spring and fall each year at the Public Works Service Center. You will need to bring a current water bill and photo identification to enter the drop site.

In order to service the growing number of residents with the more difficult items to be disposed of the following items will not be collected until AFTER the event at our Courtesy Drop Site. The Courtesy Drop Site will open at 12:00pm promptly right after the event.
