In accordance with Harwich COVID-19 Guidance Document #14,
Effective Monday, July 6, 2020:
Department of Public Works
We are open to the public, limited to one visitor inside the lobby. Appointments are encouraged. Please call 508-430-7555 for an appointment.
The Transfer Station is accepting household trash and single stream recycling.
The Transfer Station is also now accepting the following:
- Construction and Demolition
- Composting (Leaves/Grass Clippings)
In an effort to provide recycling services to our residents and follow COVID-19 directives (social distancing), we have developed a plan to temporarily transition to Single Stream Recycling where all recycling can be placed in one container. This will allow residents to quickly deposit all of their recycling in one location, making the act of recycling no different than the act of disposing of household trash or debris. There will be signage directing people to deposit all of their recycling materials (glass, plastic, cardboard, newspaper, junk mail and magazines) into the rolloff container staged in the cardboard recycling area.
This temporary transition to Single Stream recycling is in response to the COVID-19 pandemic in an attempt to make recycling as safe and quick as possible. Once the COVID-19 crisis is over, the Town will be returning to a source separated recycling process that maximizes the return on these commodities.
The Recycling Area will be configured in a manner that helps maintain proper social distancing practices and there will be staff available to answer questions residents may have. The new configuration will require longer wait times, so please plan accordingly.
TRANSFER STATION AND RECYCLING PERMITS ARE SOLD BY THE TREASURER'S OFFICE. PLEASE CALL 508-430-7501 OR CLICK HERE FOR PERMIT SALES INFORMATION
