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.

Co-Mingle Newspaper and Mixed Paper

Starting Tuesday, September 25th, Transfer Station sticker holders will now co-mingle their newspapers with mixed paper.  This decision was reached because the readership of newspapers has declined significantly in the last few years.  Co-mingling of newspaper and mixed paper will be a more efficient operation.  Signs have been placed to indicate where the paper should be disposed.
