Statewide Ban on Disposal of Needles in Household Trash

Effective July 1, 2012, needles, syringes and lancets (referred to as “sharps”) shall not be disposed of in solid municipal waste, including household waste and shall be collected and disposed of at proper disposal sites.  The Town of Duxbury will be collecting all unused and used sharps at the Duxbury Fire Station, 668 Tremont St, Duxbury.  The collection hours will be Monday-Friday from 8am until 4pm and Saturdays 8am-4pm if personnel are present.  All sharps must be brought in proper sharps containers; loose needles will not be accepted.  Fire Department personnel must be present at time of drop off. Please  do not leave unattended sharps at fire station.

Low-Costs Composts Bins Available @ Duxbury Transfer Station

To make it easier for consumers to compost kitchen scraps and yard wastes, the Massachusetts Department of Environmental Protection (MassDEP)
makes home composting bins available to cities and towns each year through its recycling equipment grant program.  
Duxbury proudly takes part in this initiative and offers the Earth Machine at the Duxbury Transfer Station.

The Earth Maichine is easy to assemble, rodent-resistent and allows for efficient aerobic composting.
It is made from a minimum of 50 percent post-consumer recycled plastic collected or processed in Massachusetts.

An average household can compost between 500 and 1,000 pounds of organic material each year in one of these bins,
producing a rich soil supplement out of material that would otherwise be thrown away.

Bins retail for between $60 and $100, but are available to residents of Duxbury at subsidized prices of $40 each.



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.
