Recycling Drop Off Center

On June 13th our Recycling Drop Off Center, located at the Highway Dept. Garage on 38 Winter Street, will be open to residents. June 13th will include wood chipping, which is an addition not found on the previous released flyers.

The opening of our Recycling Center will come with strictly enforced guidelines that follow CDC recommended safety protocols for both staff and residents.
