Mission Statement

The City of Marlborough Department of Public Works is tasked with providing residents of Marlborough  with solid waste collection, through the curb-side collection program and resident drop-off facility, and disposal at the WeCare Environmental LLC co-composting facility.  The Department also provides recycling services through curb-side collection and at the resident drop-off facility.  The Department is charged with promoting and increasing the recycling rate in order to reduce disposal costs.  Note: Recycling disposal is free (incorporated into the collection contract) and it is estimated that every 5% increase in the recycling rate reduces our solid waste disposal costs by $75,000 per year.

For answers to your Rubbish/Recycling and Resident Drop-off Facility questions call (508) 624-6910 Extension 7300.
