Wachusett Watershed Regional Recycling Center Update

Starting on March 30th, we will start our Spring/Summer Hours:

  • Tuesdays 9-11 AM
  • Thursdays 4-6 PM
  • First and Third Saturday of each month 9 AM until noon.

We have 3 Document Shredding Days scheduled for 2021. Residents can bring 2 boxes for free and after that, the fee is $2 per box.

All are Saturdays from 9 AM to noon.

  • April 17th 
  • June 19th 
  • October 16th

We have 2 Household Hazardous Waste Days scheduled for 2021. We are adding extra Saturdays with extended hours in April and November so we can have ONLY household hazardous waste drop-off happening on those days. The rest of the site will be closed for any other drop-off or pick-up. There are a few changes to our procedures and fees and we'll be sending information and reminders out regularly. Hours will be 9 AM to 1 PM.

  • April 24
  • November 13

We are now charging by carload vs can by can. By eliminating the handling of items, the process will be safer for our volunteers and should make it run a bit faster. The vendor will be assisting us with the check-in process as well. Items need to be in the trunk/back of the vehicle and in containers that will not be returned.


  • Minimum fee - up to 3 gallons/pounds $20
  • Half Load - >3 to 10 gallons/pounds $40
  • Full Load >10 to 25 gallons/pounds $70


Thank you!
