The town landfill has again amended its operations at the Resident Recycling Center. The recycling center has gone back to accepting construction and demolition (C&D) debris.
Officials with the Integrated Solid Waste Management facility announced that the recycling center is now accepting C&D debris, along with brush and yard waste, household trash and single-stream recyclables. No other items will be accepted at this time.
Residents visiting the facility are asked to limit their time at the recycling center and to follow the directions of the staff. That means following recommended social distancing policies, as well as Massachusetts Governor Charles D. Baker Jr.’s recent order requiring wearing a face covering in public spaces where social distancing may not be possible.
All other services at the RRC will remain closed including Dorothy’s Swap Shop; all sheds, including paint, waste oil, redeemable cans, batteries, light bulbs, waste antifreeze, mercury-containing items, and used oil filters; mattress and textiles drop-off; tires and computers/e-waste drop off; appliances drop-off including refrigerators, air conditioning units and dehumidifiers; and access to loam, mulch and sand.
In addition, the C&D Material Transfer Station will be open only to commercial customers such as contractors and companies hauling roll-off containers. The facility is not open to homeowners with house clean-outs or small loads of demolition debris.
Cash will not be accepted at the facility’s scale. Credit cards and checks will be accepted, but signatures and other paperwork will be suspended.
