Recycling Corner: Hybrid Pay As You Throw Program Provides An Amnesty Trash Collection


The town of Brookline will provide a Trash Amnesty Week on residents scheduled pick up day the week of Oct. 23-27. During this period residents on the town’s trash service are welcome to dispose of extra household trash along with their regular trash. Pickups will occur on your regular pickup day. During this period residents will be free to put out excess bags of trash and latex-based paints that are unable to fit HPAYT trash carts. Paint must be completely dried out and left out with the covers off for testing. Bulky items such as sofas, mattresses, TVs and appliances need to be called in and scheduled for pickup at 617-730-2156. All excess trash bags, paint and bulky items should be placed next to their trash and recycling carts.

Household hazardous waste items and flammable materials will not be permitted and should be brought to the Town Hazardous Recycling Drop Off Center at 815 Newton St. on Tuesdays between the hours of 7:30 a.m. and 12:30 p.m. Yard waste pickups will occur as normal on your pickup day.

The Brookline Department of Public Works is pleased to offer this amnesty week as a part of our Hybrid Pay as You Throw Trash Program.

Any questions or concerns should be directed to our offices at 617-730-2156.
