The Duxbury DPW appreciates our residents’ recycling efforts.  Proper recycling is an important way to keep your taxes in check, and our environment healthy.  

The DPW is partnering with the South Shore Recycling Cooperative to help you recycle right.   Over the next several weeks, friendly SSRC staff will be at the Transfer Station to ensure that our residents understand and comply with Duxbury’s regulations.

Recycling is mandatory, and all disposed and recycled materials must be put in the correct areas.  For instance, food soiled items, plastic bags, and liquids may not be placed in the recycling area. Clean paper, cardboard, bottles and rigid containers may not go in the trash.  

Repeat violations may result in loss of Transfer Station privileges.

For more information on how to recycle right, go to, and click on Town Programs.

Please  do not leave unattended sharps at fire station. This new regulation applies to household trash that is brought to the transfer station as well as curbside pick up.  For further information, please contact the Board of Health, 781-934-1100; Ext. 5491 or go to


If there is very little left in the can, simply remove the cover and let it dry.  
The can may then be placed in the metal bin at the Transfer Station.  
If there is more than a little left, add cat litter to absorb the paint and place it in the blue bag and dispose of it as you do your household trash.
