What can NOT be be put in my Recycling Barrel? Waste Management will not pick up your recycling barrel if contaminants are found in the barrel. We are seeing a large amount of plastic bags and other contaminants in recycling barrels. Thank you for your help.

MovingIf you are moving, you must leave your trash and recycling barrels for the new homeowner. If the barrels are missing, a replacement cost for new barrels will be charged either to the current owner or the new homeowner.

Damaged or Lost Barrels? The barrels provided are the property of the Town of Westwood and will be repaired or replaced if the damage is from the trash contractor. If the barrel is damaged as a result of neglect, or if the cart is missing or stolen, the resident will be responsible for the replacement cost. Please call the DPW office at 781-251-2587 for additional information.
