Warwick Transfer Station is for use by residents only (year-round and seasonal). See the attendant for direction and with any questions.

Recycling is the law. We provide for the following sorts:

metal
commingled containers
organics

paper and corrugated
textiles
crt and flatscreen displays

batteries
tires
lighting and ballasts

Trash and bulky waste are not recycled. In each case what you don’t recyle goes to a landfill.

Break down boxes before putting them in the compactor. The compactor stroke is short relative to the container. Help us get more in each load by cutting up and flattening your boxes.

Bulky charges are by volume even though we pay for disposal by weight. It costs the same to ship a light load as a heavy one. Note the surcharge for bulky items longer than four feet in length. Cut up carpet, lumber, and sheetrock so we can compact the load. Or pay 2x the rate.

No charge for most metal items – put them in the appropriate container. There is a charge for removal of refrigerants. Not negotiable.

The transfer station is not a swap meet. If you have something “good” to give away advertise it on the e-mail list. For liability reasons we prohibit scavenging.

We are not permitted to accept hazardous materials. No used motor oil or antifreeze. Paint must be dry. A Household hazardous waste day is held once each year.

What to do with small batteries?
Rechargeable batteries are collected in lamp shed. Other small one use batteries, dispose of in trash. If you buy a new auto battery you can turn in the old one in where you bought the new one.

Mattresses and box springs have to be recycled. Greenfield and Bernardston are accepting. Most sellers of new bedding will haul away the old as part of the transaction.

So that the attendant can spend more time making the transfer station run efficiently and less time being a retail clerk, bags purchased at the library or at town hall cost far less than those sold at the transfer station. Your payment by check, rather than by cash, whenever possible, is appreciated.
