For your convenience, the brush dump and the recycling center will be OPEN on Saturday, July 3rd.

Due to the ongoing COVID-19 situation the Town has decided that residents may use the brush dump with or without a valid permit. All residents who visit the brush dump must wear a mask and practice social distancing for the duration of their visit.

While the Town does its best to make sure the brush dump is open when advertised, situations may arise where the brush dump might open late, close early, or not open at all. Please be aware that hours of operation are subject to change with minimal notice. The brush dump may also close at any time due to severe or inclement weather.

The Town of Grafton does not offer curb side pick-up of yard waste

 

On May 1, 2021 the Recycling Center will be moving from the Highway Garage (at 27 Upton Street) to the new DPW facility located at 64 Old Westboro Road. With the change in location comes a change in operating hours. 

Beginning May 1, 2021 the new Recycling Center hours will be:

  • Tuesdays & Thursdays: 10:00am - 2:00pm

  • Saturdays: 8:00am - 1:00pm

The Recycling Center containers are single stream. There is no need to seperate your recycling.

At the moment, the center is not accepting light bulbs of any kind. Once collection resumes, we'll post it here.
