Franklin County Solid Waste District’s “Clean Sweep” Bulky Waste Recycling Day is Saturday, October 21, from 9 a.m. to noon, at 3 locations. The three drop-off sites are: the Buckland Recreation Facility at 66 Ashfield Rd. (Rt. 112 South), the Northfield Highway Garage at 49 Caldwell Rd., and the Whately Transfer Station at 73 Christian Lane.
Residents from any District town may bring bulky items such as tires, appliances, scrap metal, furniture, mattresses, carpeting, construction debris, computers, televisions, propane gas tanks, and other large items. Materials will be recycled whenever possible; disposal fees apply for most items. Clean and dry (bagged) textiles and books accepted free for reuse or recycling.
Residents and businesses do not need to pre-register for the collection. However, there are charges for most items. Disposal fees, cash only, will be collected during check-in at each site. A complete list of prices for the most common items is online at: www.franklincountywastedistrict.org/cleansweep.html, and will be made available to participating town halls, town transfer stations, and the District office at 50 Miles Street in Greenfield.
