Heath Recycles! Recycling is required and mandatory in the Commonwealth of MA. Please comply with Heath's Waste Ban Plan and recycle glass, metal, plastic, paper (including cardboard), leaf and yard waste, asphalt pavement, brick, concrete, metal and wood. All are prohibited and must be recycled. Recycling protects the environment and saves money by cutting solid waste management costs. Throw away less and Recycle more.
Thank you!

All Heath residents can use the Greenfield Transfer Station year-round. The Greenfield transfer station accepts a wide variety of most materials for a fee. For more information view their Materials and Pricing Guide.
To find recycling and disposal locations for a variety of hard-to-manage materials, try Recycle Smart's Beyond the Bin page which lists all facilities that accept specific items.

Heath Transfer Station permit stickers are available at the Heath Post Office:

All Users need a new permit every July 1. Hours of the Post Office are 9:30 am - 1:30 pm Monday through Saturday.

FEES: Permit and PAYT (Pay as you Throw) trash bags require stickers. Annual permits cost $15 and stickers $2.00/each and both are available for purchase in June.

INFO SHEET Recycling rules are same as usual. Please do not litter! Recycling is FREE. Please discard your empty cans/bottles, etc. in their proper place at the Transfer Station rather than tossing them on our beautiful roadsides!

Household Hazardous Waste Collection

As a resident of Heath you have access to at least six Household Hazardous Waste collection events each year. To see the complete list of collection event dates, times and locations, go to: Greater Pioneer Valley Regional Hazardous Waste Collections

Pre-registration is required.

Do you have worn clothing, outdated electronics or other items that don't belong in your household recycling bin? Don't throw them away. Find out where to recycle, reuse, or repurpose them in Massachusetts by using the MassDEP's searchable Beyond the Bin Recycling Directory.

Bulky Items - Companies Offering Pickup & Disposal

If you have bulky items (mattresses, upholstered furniture, wood furniture, toilets, sinks, and carpet) that you are unable to transport to the Greenfield Transfer Station, or to the Franklin County Solid Waste Management District's May and October ""Clean Sweep"" events, there are local companies that you can hire to pick up and properly dispose of the items.

You will be contracting directly with the private hauler and will be responsible for paying any pickup and disposal fees that are charged. This is NOT a service provided by the Town of Heath. You are making a private arrangement with a private company to perform a service, and the Town does not control the fees that are charged.

This list is not intended to be an exhaustive list of all companies that may provide this service and does not constitute any endorsement or recommendation by the Town of Heath. Companies are listed alphabetically.
