As always, the monthly recycle program for used motor-oil, oil based paints, fluorescent light bulbs, contained mercury, Ni-Cad batteries (found in cell phones, cordless phones and camcorders) and rechargeable batteries will continue to be held on the 1st Saturday of each month at the DPW yard located at 20 Ponderosa Road (behind the salt shed) from 9 a.m. to noon.

Please refrain from illegally dumping any waste at the facility during non-collection days.

The DPW yard is located in a heavily wooded watershed area right next door to the Ashland Animal Shelter and any items that are left while the facility is unattended by staff is subject to ingestion by area wildlife and spillage having obvious negative effects on the environment….which only defeats the purpose of the collection facility.

If you have any questions or concerns, please call Dave Miller at the DPW @ 508-532-7943
