Recycling: The Town of Shelburne recycles the following materials:

  • Paper (clean paper only) & Newsprint
  • Cardboard (please flatten boxes)
  • Plastics (containers smaller than 2 gallons)
  • Glass
  • Tin, steel and aluminum
  • Fluorescent Bulbs
  • NEW:  Scrap Metal (see flyer)

Bulky Items - Companies Offering Pickup & Disposal

If you have bulky items (mattresses, upholstered furniture, wood furniture, toilets, sinks, and carpet) that you are unable to transport to the Greenfield Transfer Station (year-round) or to the Franklin County Solid Waste Management District's May and October Clean Sweep events, there are local companies that you can hire to pick up and properly dispose of the items.

You will be contracting directly with the private hauler and will be responsible for paying any pickup and disposal fees that are charged. This is NOT a service provided by the Town of Shelburne. You are making a private arrangement with a private company to perform a service, and the Town does not control the fees that are charged.

This list is not intended to be an exhaustive list of all companies that may provide this service, and does not constitute any endorsement or recommendation by the Town of Shelburne. Companies are listed alphabetically.
