Republic Services is the Town’s pay as you throw curbside collection contractor

Questions call 508-504-8803 Press #1 for Republic Customer Service, Press #2 to be connected to town staff.  You may also email questions to: solidwaste@town.northborough.ma.us

Town’s Pay as You Throw (PAYT)
The curbside collection service is available to all residents.  To participate in the program, you must purchase designated Northborough trash bags (green) which are sold at many local stores. Northborough trash bags are $15 per package, 5 large bags or 10 small.  Those utilizing the town program are also entitled to free curbside recycling.

Trash is picked up each week, recycling is collected every other week.  Click on the street list to determine which day your trash is picked up and which week (A or B) your recycling will be collected.  Please make sure items are at the curb by 7am and keep in mind the drivers have approximately 1,000 stops each day.

  • Bulk Item Labels:  Residents may purchase a $10 bulk item label to dispose of large burnable items, such as a couch or a piece of wooden furniture.  Please refer to the Trash & Recycling Calendar/Information Sheet for additional information.  Rocky’s Ace Hardware, 261 West Main Street, and Helen’s Variety Store, 292 Main Street, are the only retailers currently selling the bulk item labels.  
  • Organic Waste Diversion: Kitchen scraps and other organic compostable waste constitutes a significant percentage of residential solid waste, in many instances up to 20% of a home’s total annual weight of waste. Northborough offers the sale of compost bins and kitchen scrap buckets at a discount, $25 and $5 respectively, through the support of MassDEP. Please contact the Town solid waste program to schedule your purchase.
  • Statewide Ban on Curbside Mattress Collection
    As of November 1, 2022, mattresses, box springs and textiles are no longer allowed in the trash. New state rules require mattresses and textiles be kept out of the waste stream so that they can be recycled or donated for reuse.  These items will no longer qualify for bulk item curbside collection. 
  • Home Delivery of PAYT Bags - Please note both Wegmans in Northborough and Roche Bros. in Westborough will deliver the Town of Northborough trash bags with your grocery order placed online, store delivery fees may apply.
