Saturday drop off recycling events for special items are held at the DPW Recycling Center at 72 Tremont Street from 8 a.m. – 12 p.m. Typically these events are held on the 3rd Saturday of the month from April through October (except July & August). See page 2 of the Collection Calendar above, as well as the flier (or PDF download) below, for a list of 2018 events.
The items collected at all Saturday events that take place at the Recycling Center (except Household Hazardous Waste Day) include: CRTs & flat screens (including televisions, monitors and laptops – all $20), metal goods ($25), tires ($2-$8), home office electronics, CFL bulbs, books, clothes, mercury items, and dried latex paint. (Please note that the June Household Hazardous Waste Day, which takes place in Stoneham, and Swap Day, which takes place behind City Hall, can NOT accept most of these items.)
Recycling Center stickers and recycling label stickers will be available.
