Transfer Station / Recycling Center

The Sudbury Department of Public Works operates a secure, safe and environmentally friendly Transfer Facility for the residents of Sudbury to properly dispose of and/or recycle common household items and non-hazardous waste.

The station provides excellent recycling opportunities in which residents can exercise environmental stewardship of resources and help reduce the bulk amount of trash.

Items that can be recycled include newspapers, mixed paper, cardboard, glass, aluminum cans, plastic, automobile batteries, used motor oil and scrap metal. Careful recycling is the best way to keep the price of your sticker at the current rate.

Per the vote of the Board of Selectmen, the costs of operating the Transfer Station are covered through a Pay-As-You-Throw pricing mechanism.

Other materials that you may have (such as carpeting, furniture, building debris, tires, and refrigerators) require a special fee payable at the Transfer Station (Transfer Station Fees chart). Payment can be made at the shed located at the Entrance to the Transfer Station/Recycle Center. No contractors or businesses allowed. This service is for residents only.



Pay-As-You-Throw is a two part system. Resident must purchase a yearly Transfer Station Sticker for their car and then they must use the designated yellow Transfer Station bag to be able to use the waste collection point at the station. The bags are sold in packages of five (5) and come in two sizes, 30 gallon and 15 gallon. (A normal kitchen trash bag is thirteen gallons). These bags are sold locally and are not available at the Transfer Station.

The Pay-As-You-Throw program continues to be successful as recycling is still up and tonnage of waste hauled is down. The current annual sticker price is $155.00. The prices of the bags are $2.00 for the 30-gallon size and $1.00 for the 15-gallon size. They are sold in packets of 5 bags at local PAYT Retailers.
