Waste Management Guidelines

Norton Residential Guidelines

All trash should be bagged. For your convenience, customers are provided with a 90 gallon trash toter which holds 3 to 5 bags of trash. In addition, we will take 4 extra bags of waste.

Bulky Waste

You may place up to one bulky item each week at curbside. For example, if you have a couch or a chair that are beyond repair, place one out one week, and the other the following week. Bulky waste consists of a sofa, mattresses, chairs, small tables, etc. It does not include metal objects, such as appliances, bikes, lawn mowers, etc.

Tires
The Norton Tire Center at 117 West Main Street offers a tire drop off service during regular business hours (no rims, please).

Waste Oil, Filters and Antifreeze
With the aid of a grant from MA DEP, a facility to receive these wastes is now open at the Highway Department on the last Saturday of the month between 1:00 p.m.-3:00 p.m. There is no charge for this service; however, residents must register to participate.*

White Goods
Large appliances will be collected for recycling every Tuesday by appointment only. You must call 800-972-4545 to schedule an appointment. A nominal charge applies and must be prepaid using a credit card or check over the phone.

Yard Waste
Yard waste may be brought to the Hill Street landfill site on Saturdays. Note split season: mid-April to mid-June and mid-September to mid-November. Hours of operation are 9:00 am to noon only. Only leaves and grass will be accepted. No branches or brush.*
