It is Closed Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday.

 

You can bring leaves and yard waste all year long to the Recycling Center during operating hours - including Christmas Trees, if you missed the pick-up this year.

 

Public Space Recycling is working in Natick - Please look for and use our new green cage recycling bins in all our ball fields and public spaces - together we are making a difference!

 

Great News! The Paint Shed will be open again this spring at the Recycling Center.

 If you have Latex Paint that you would like to get rid of and you are a Natick resident you can bring it to the paint shed at the Recycling Center. Paint accepted from Natick residents only.

There is a 5 gallon limit per visit. Latex and enamel only, NO THINNERS or Oil based or anything like that.

Need Paint? Anyone can get the paint from the paint shed, you do not have to be a Natick resident to get paint. And right now the paint shed is full of good usable paint!

  

You can also offer paint on www.craigslist.com or www.freecycle.org . Both organizations allow you to give away things for free and you can arrange pick-up at your home or a drop-off at a mutually agreeable location.

If you have old oil based Paint or Stain you will need to wait until Hazardous Waste Day (annually, usually in May, contact the Board of Health for info) to dispose of it. If you have a lot of cans of old paint or other hazardous items or you are a business, you can call Clean Harbors (in Braintree) for disposal at 781-380-7120. There is a small fee.

 

Please don't put can of wet paint in your trash! Wet paint in cans costs the Town money to clean up for both the trucks and the mess it can make on streets and sidewalks. If you old dried up paint cans they can go into your blue trash bags.

Shredded paper IS recyclable in Natick recycling programs, curbside and at the recycling center:

If you shred papers at home, place shredded paper in a paper bag and lightly tape or staple the top shut.  Securing the bag will help reduce litter.

Please, do not use plastic bags!
