Yard Waste Days by Street
"Yard Waste is banned from the trash by State regulations.
DO NOT put leaves or grassclippings in your trash!
Also, DO NOT rake or blow leaves or grass clippings into the street,
storm drains, streams or wetlands."
Mass DEP Waste Ban Regulations
Other options for your yard waste:
Grasscycling & Leaf Mulching & Compost Bins
Republic Services collects both your trash and recycling one day per week - Every Thursday.
The entire town of Burlington is collected on the same day.
Please have all materials curbside by 7:00 A.M.
NOTE: Yard Waste is collected in a different manner -
Although trash pickup is on Thursdays for the entire town, Yard Waste collection follows a Monday through Friday pickup (with different neighborhoods scheduled on different days of the week). This allows us to employ less yard waste trucks in the Town and also allows for those missed the previous day to be picked up because we have a truck in town every day.
DURING YARD WASTE/CHRISTMAS TREE PICKUP TIME:
PLEASE CALL 781-270-1670 ON THE FIRST MISSED DAY IF THE TRASH COMPANY MISSES YOUR YARD WASTE.
PLEASE DO NOT WAIT - THE TRUCKS ARE IN TOWN EVERY DAY DURING THAT TIME
In the event of a Holiday your collection day will be one day later (Friday)
Bulk items such as furniture are also still collected for FREE from Republic Services.
Please call @ 800-442-9006 to schedule a pick-up.
