We are closed Thursday, Nov 24 for Thanksgiving.   We open again Tuesday Nov 29.

WINTER Hours as of November: Tuesday 10am-noon; Thursday 2-4pm; 1st and 3rd Saturdays 9am to noon.

Building drop off – Boxes 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.


Welcome! We accept curbside recycling items, textiles and many hard to recycle items (some with a fee), but we also have tons of free items for reuse.   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.

We are NOT a transfer station or brush dump.  DEP regulations prohibit us from accepting kitchen/picnic/food trash or lawn/brush waste or creosote lumber.

Site 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.

Site Entry: Everyone must go through Check In.  Please have your face masks on as you approach the Check In station.  You may remove it while outside.

ReUse Building Entry:  Masks are no longer required inside the ReUse building.   We currently allow 30 people into the building for 15 minutes at a time.

ReUse Building Drop Off:  Drop off is at MIBOX unit along the exit road.   Items MUST be in boxes with closed lids.  Please read the post below: ReUse Building.



Yes! We need your help

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.
