SUMMER Hours April-October – Tues 9am-11am; Thurs 4-6pm; 1st and 3rd Sat 9am to noon.
Next event: Saturday, October 7th. Household Goods Furniture Bank will be onsite from 9am to noon to collect furniture and home goods. If they accept your items, there is no fee. If they decline them you can leave them with us for a fee if appropriate. The rest of the site will be open. See the post below for further information on what is accepted.
Summer Weather Closing: Whenever we are experiencing extreme weather, please check here, Google Business, our Facebook page or call to hear our outgoing message on our phone line to find out if we’re open. The center will be closed during periods of extreme heat if the actual or (heat index-real feel) temperature is 95 degrees Fahrenheit or higher during the hours of operation. We do not close if it’s just raining. We may temporarily suspend work if there’s a bad thunderstorm happening so our volunteers and visitors can take cover.
Building drop off: You can drop off 2 boxes but they MUST close and MUST be 30 lbs or less. We are going to start rejecting those that don’t meet this criteria. We simply can’t manage the literal ton of material dropped off on each open day if it’s not packed correctly. Thank you for your help.
Welcome! We accept curbside recycling items, textiles and many hard to recycle items (some with a fee).
We also have tons of free items for reuse throughout the site.
We hold document shredding, latex paint and household hazardous waste collection events a few times per year for residents of our member towns: Boylston, Holden, Paxton, Princeton, Rutland, Sterling and West Boylston. Read on for more information, send us a message, give us a call, or check out our Facebook page. DEP regulations prohibit us from accepting trash or lawn/brush waste or creosote lumber.
Site Entry: Everyone must go through Check In. We track participation for the towns.
ReUse Building Drop Off: Drop remains at MIBOX unit along the exit road. Items MUST be in boxes with closed lids. Please read the post below for additional information about the: ReUse Building.

As an almost completely all-volunteer operation, we rely on our volunteers to keep the site open. Please consider helping out, if only for one slot/week (or month). We are friendly, welcoming folks.
