Important information to know before visiting the Needham Recycling and Transfer Station:

• There are two lanes of traffic to enter the RTS – one lane to the left is for vehicles going straight to yard waste. The right lane is for residents disposing of trash and recyclables.

• Household trash must be disposed of in a yellow "pay-as-you-throw" bag.

• Residents are encouraged to visit the RTS during non-peak hours. Saturdays are extremely busy. If you can deliver your waste on other days, that would be appreciated.

• RTS is accepting drop-off of tires, refrigerators/air conditioners, and TVs and computers.  Fees charged as applicable; see office trailer attendant.  

• The RTS no longer offers a Goodwill Trailer. Book and textile recycling is available on site. 

Please adhere to social distancing guidelines, including staying 6 feet away from fellow RTS patrons and staff. To minimize interaction, consider dropping items off during off-peak times instead of Saturdays.
