Trash Bills/Fees

Trash bills are issued annually and must be paid by July 1. The base annual fee is $150 for each residence.  Senior discounts may be applicable. Services are provided by Collector’s Office at Town Hall (Monday through Friday 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.). Payment of this fee provides for weekly curbside collection of trash and recycling and seasonal collection of yard waste including Christmas trees.   Payment also allows use of the:

Residential Trash and Recycling Drop-Off Center

and the 

Compost Drop-Off Site
225 Plain Street
Braintree, MA 02184

As long as you obtain a valid sticker for your vehicle.  This sticker also includes parking at Sunset Lake.

Trash Stickers

A Resident Trash Sticker is required to use the Residential Trash/Recycling Drop Off Center and the Compost Drop Off site. The Sticker cost is included in your annual trash fee and can be obtained at the Treasurer/Collector’s Office at Town Hall (Monday through Friday 8:30 a.m. through 4:30 p.m.).

To obtain a sticker, please bring a copy of your car registration with you when you pay your trash fee and a sticker will be provided at no additional cost. (Car registration must be to the same address as the trash fee). The sticker must be placed on the driver’s side of your car windshield.

Excess Trash - One Load Permits

The Residential Drop-Off Center and the Curbside trash pickup are intended for normal, weekly household trash.

Residents can also purchase a special "one-load permit" at a cost of $25 from the Collector’s Office at Town Hall ( call them at 781-794-8130 on Monday through Friday from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.). This permit allows a pick-up or S.U.V. to bring one load per day up to 500 lbs. to the Drop-Off Center. Multiple permits can be purchased and there is no expiration date.

Vehicle to be used must have a current Trash Sticker, must be registered to a Braintree resident and is non-transferable. Commercial Businesses, Condominiums or Apartment Buildings are not eligible. The “One-Load Permit” is only valid at the Braintree Residential Drop-Off Center. The permit cannot be used at the Covanta Transfer Facility.

Excessive trash that is generated by cleanouts due to moving, periodic 'house cleanings' or construction projects must be disposed of by renting a dumpster.
