Curbside Collection Services

Braintree Trash & Recycling Update Spring 2021

Excessive trash or recycling cannot be picked up curbside.  Residents receiving curbside services who have the occasional extra material may utilize the Recycling Drop-Off Center at 257 Ivory St.  All trash at Drop-Off Center must be contained within a plastic bag & securely tied.  A Town-issued sticker from the Treasurer's Office (781-794-8134) is required & must be affixed to your windshield.  Up to 3 bags of trash and unlimited recycling may be dropped off daily.  Recycling Center Hours: Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, Friday & Saturday: 7:15am to 2:45pm

A $25 One-Load Permit to dispose of excess trash* beyond the three bag allowance MAY BE PURCHASED AHEAD OF TIME AT THE TREASURER'S OFFICE/TOWN HALL/781-794-8134.  *excess trash consists of items such as fencing, wood, carpet, furniture, mattresses & all other items not fully bagged & tied.  We cannot accept bricks, stone or concrete blocks.  Each permit allows up to 500 pounds of material, and the permit can only be used once.  However, you may purchase multiple permits.
