Policy

Can be disposed of at transfer stations, but refer to QUANTITY AND LIMITATIONS (page 12), for the equivalent of 5 pick-up truck loads (except Northampton, which allows 3 loads) for a home improvement project.

If the quantity will be greater than five loads worth, resident should be advised to hire a private hauler. Small haulers are listed under “Rubbish & Garbage Removal” in the phone book or call the Department of Solid Waste for a list of local permitted haulers.

Station attendants are within their job duties to request the loads be spaced out and not be brought on the same day, so the garbage hoppers do not become overfull.
