Please continue to buy your orange trash bags from local retailers, Groton Shaw's, Groton Country Farm & Ayer Shop 'n Save. Groton Transfer Station, until further notice, will discontinue selling bags April 1st.
Yes, town orange trash bags & recycling are still accepted. The following fee items will temporarily not be accepted due to the labor contact-intensive nature:
. Construction and Demolition Debris
. Wood Waste
. Bulky Items (that go into the dumpster for a fee)
. Other fee items including Bulk Metal, White Goods (refrigerators washer dryers, etc.) and Electronic items.
These are all items which require interaction at the station which we believe can wait or be disposed of at commercial facilities, for the time being, or be put aside until we resume normal operations. This will limit the exposure and risk to employees substantially and enable us to continue, for now, to collect trash and recyclables which is more of a priority.
Please call the Transfer Station at 978-732-1900 with questions. Help Prevent the Spread of Coronavirus at the Transfer Station. PLEASE: . Prepare your discards for quick placement of your trash, recycling, and yard waste . Reduce the number of your trips and buy more trash bags/stickers at one time . Keep a safe distance (6 feet) from other users and attendants . Don't linger on the premises to visit . As always, wash your hands after leaving transfer station.
Thank you for keeping our community healthy. Stay tuned for updates!
