How do I dispose of household trash and recycle?

The Town of Westborough does not provide public curbside trash and recycling pickup. A recycling and trash disposal drop-off facility is provided for the town under contract with E.L. Harvey and Sons (68 Hopkinton Road - Route 135).

All vehicles that use the facility are required to display a dump sticker, a recycling sticker, or a paper pass. Proof of residency must be provided to obtain a sticker or a pass.  Dump stickers can be purchased at the Westborough Board of Health or online

Free recycling stickers are available for residents that wish to recycle only.  Recylcling stickers can be picked up at the Board of Health office during normal business hours. 

One day and one month passes to the transfer station are available for residents who need to use the facility for a short time period.  A one day pass is $5 and a one month pass is $20.  Residents are limited to 3 passes a year.  Passes can be purchased at the Board of Health office during normal business hours.  We take cash and checks for payment.     

**Please be advised that the yard waste disposal area for Westborough residents using the transfer station has been moved to E. L. Harvey’s Hopkinton site (394 Wood Street).  This is a permanent location for the yard waste disposal area.**

Dump sticker cost for the July 1, 2018 - June 30, 2020 period are $170 for the 1st sticker and $85 for a 2nd sticker. Senior stickers (65 yrs. of age or older) are half price. The Rules and Regulations for the facility can be found here.

The hours for the Transfer Station are:  
Monday - Friday 8AM - 5 PM
Saturdays 8AM - 3PM
The facility is closed on Sunday.

Private curbside collection service is available to residents who do not wish to purchase a dump sticker for the drop-off facility.
