Residents have been cleaning out, de-cluttering, and making more waste during this stay-at-home advisory. The annual Reduce, Reuse, Recycle Guide provides information on how to recycle, reuse, donate, compost, safely dispose of, or trash your discards.

Shelburne residents can purchase an Earth Machine backyard compost bin at a subsidized price of $25. The subsidized compost bin can be purchased at the Franklin County Solid Waste District. Visit https://franklincountywastedistrict.org/Composting for information on backyard composting and the District’s office location. The town encourages all residents to remove organic material from the trash and use a backyard compost bin. Approximately 25% of household trash is organic material that can be diverted to a compost bin.
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.

Annual Collection Days:
The Franklin County Solid Waste Management District holds its "Clean Sweep" bulky waste collection days each May and October. Check the website for upcoming dates: https://franklincountywastedistrict.org/p/70/Clean-Sweep-Bulky-Waste-Collection
The drop-off site most convenient to Shelburne is the Mohawk Trail Regional High School. Residents may bring a wide range of items to either collection: tires, appliances, scrap metal, furniture, mattresses, carpeting, construction debris, computers, televisions, propane gas tanks, and other large items. Materials will be recycled whenever possible. Residents do not need to pre-register for the collection. Disposal fees, cash only, will be collected from residents during check-in. Businesses may participate.
Before each collection, a complete list of prices for the most common items is made available at participating town halls, town transfer stations, the District office at 117 Main Street in Greenfield, and online at: https://franklincountywastedistrict.org/p/71/Clean-Sweep-Price-Guide
