If a resident intends to do a home improvement/remodeling project, or a huge clean out of a garage, attic, shed, etc., and the quantity will be more than the equivalent of five pick-up truck loads (three loads in Northampton), a private hauler should be recommended.

Several small haulers are listed under “Rubbish & Garbage Removal” in the telephone book Yellow Pages, or call the Department of Solid Waste (578-736-5501) for a list of permitted haulers in your area.
