How will I dispose of sofas, mattresses or other large items that won’t fit into a bag?

Purchase a bulky item sticker ($10) from Conley’s Drug, Cumberland Farms (Central Street location only), DJ’s Variety, Richdale, Shaw’s or Tedford’s. 

You may put out one stickered bulky item per week on your usual trash day. Carpet from ONE room must be cut into 4-foot widths and rolled up. 

Electronics can be recycled curbside with the purchase of a $25 sticker, obtained from JRM by calling 978-536-2500. Many electronics items can be recycled at Best Buy or Staples (call first).

Additionally, electronics recycling events are held every May and September.
