HOTLINE Information - Please read carefully:
A Trash and Recycling Hotline has been established for residents with collection issues. You may call this Hotline if you have properly put your trash out by 7 am on Tuesday and have NOT received a violation notice on your trash or recycling cart.
During normal business hours (M-F 7AM-3:30PM) residents may call (508) 624-6910 ext 33300. After business hours residents may call (508) 624-6910 ext 33700 to leave a message. The messages will be checked by trash collection crews, and as appropriate, collection will take place in a timely manner.
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 33300.
