Aluminum cans are recycled in your Braintree recycling cart. Metals can also be recycled at the Drop-Off center. The Boy Scouts of America have a cart to donate returnable bottles and cans at the Drop-Off Center.
Large metal items such as swing sets, basketball stands/hoops, utility shelves can be recycled at the Drop-Off center. There is a metal container for these items. These items can also be picked up curbside but these items must be taken apart and bundled in small manageable pieces and placed in your trash cart. Reminder, there is a 50 pound limit to what can be placed curbside.
