Brush days
The State Department of Environmental Protection banned yard waste which includes brush, grass and leaves from the wastes that can disposed of in landfills and incinerators/resource recovery facilities in 1991 (this regulation can be found at 310 CMR 19.00). Since then the Town of Northborough has made an area at the Highway Garage at 190 Main Street available for depositing brush, leaves and grass.

Rules for Brush Days are as follows:
1.      Northborough Residents Only (Not for Commercial Use)
2.      No Brush Larger than 6-Inch Diameter
3.      NO Plastic (bags, bins, etc.)
4.      NO Liquid, Trash, Paint, Oil or Other Debris
5.      NO Metal, Glass or Construction Debris

Grass and leaves can be brought to the highway garage any business day during normal business hours with a maximum diameter of 1-inch.  Anything large constitutes brush and can only be brought on specific days when the crew is available to process the brush.  Brush days are scheduled during the spring and fall at the Municipal Highway Garage, 190 Main Street from 8 am to 12 pm (noon) on the following designated days:
