The Town of Brookline will provide a Trash Amnesty pick up next week as part of National Public Works Week.

During the week of May 17-21, residents on the Town’s trash collection service are permitted to dispose of extra household trash alongside their town-issued trash cart.

Pickups will occur on the resident’s regular scheduled pickup day. Residents on the town Service are allowed to put out excess bags of trash that are unable to fit in the Hybrid Pay as You Throw (HPAYT) waste carts.

Bulky items such as sofas, mattresses, TVs, and appliances need to be called in and scheduled for pickup at 617-730-2156. Please do not place any items out for pick-up before 3:30 p.m. the day before your scheduled trash day.

Household hazardous waste items and flammable materials will not be permitted and should be brought to the Town Hazardous Recycling Drop -off Center at 815 Newton Street on Tuesdays between the hours of 7:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. Yard waste pickups will occur as normal on your scheduled pickup day.

The Town of Brookline is pleased to offer this amnesty week as a part of its Hybrid Pay as You Throw Trash Program. Any questions or concerns should be directed to the DPW offices at 617-730-2156.
