Fall bulky waste collection on Oct. 19

3 sites will be open

Got some bulky junk you’ve been wanting to get rid of?

The Franklin County Solid Waste Management District is holding a “Clean Sweep” bulky waste collection Oct. 19 from 9 a.m. to noon. The three drop-off sites are: the Buckland Recreation Facility on Route 112 South, the Northfield Highway Garage and the Whately Transfer Station.

District residents may bring a wide range of items that are typically difficult to get rid of such as tires, appliances, scrap metal, furniture, mattresses, carpeting, construction debris, computers, televisions, propane gas tanks and other large items.

Materials will be recycled whenever possible.

District residents are from the towns of Bernardston, Buckland, Charlemont, Colrain, Conway, Deerfield, Erving, Gill, Hawley, Heath, Leverett, Leyden, Montague, New Salem, Northfield, Orange, Rowe, Shelburne, Sunderland, Warwick, Wendell and Whately.

Residents do not need to register for the collection. However, there are charges for disposal. Disposal fees, cash only, will be collected from residents during check-in at each site. Businesses may participate. A complete list of prices for the most common items will be available at participating town halls, town transfer stations, the district office at 50 Miles St. in Greenfield, and online at:
