Free Collection of Paper for Shredding at Wachusett Regional Recycling Collection, Saturday May 20, 2017

Shredded paper

Wachusett Watershed Regional Recycle Center will be open on Saturday May 20, 2017 from 8:00 am to 11:00 am.  This collection will include Free Collection of Documents for Shredding.  Rather than shredding onsite, our vendor will provide locked containers in a locked truck and will shred the paper offsite later that day.  Please only bring paper with confidential information to the shredding truck.  Other non-confidential paper products can be deposited in the paper recycling dumpster.  Due to the popularity of the free document shredding, quantities may be limited to serve all residents.

The Recycle Center is also open for all bulk, recycle, reuse and electronics (some with fee)

Next Special Collection: Saturday, June 17th from 8 to noon  - Paints & Chemicals (HHP).

Reminder: the center is now open weekly on Thursday nights from 5 to 7pm.

Items brought into the ReUse building should be clean and organized into like items for our sorters.  Liquids and chemicals are not accepted in the building.  Dirty or end of life items can be recycled outside or taken to the dumpsters for disposal.  No moldy, pet stained or rodent infested boxes should be brought into the building. 

Regular open hours every Tuesday 9 to 11 am, Wednesday 2:30 to 4:30 pm, Thursday 5 to 7 pm, & third Saturday 8 to 11 am.  The Recycling Center is open to residents of seven Wachusett Towns: Boylston, Holden, Paxton, Princeton, Rutland, Sterling and West Boylston.  The collection is provided by Wachusett Earthday, the Department of Conservation and Recreation, and the seven Wachusett Towns.

The Recycle Center welcomes home goods, reusable furniture, crafts, sporting goods, fabric, bicycles, school supplies and appliances for swap or to be passed on to families in need. Each large appliance or large furniture item costs $5 for potential disposal.
