Transfer Station Permits Expire September 30th

xferpermit

Last year’s move to eliminate the annual mailing and encourage online permit renewal and access to an online application was a success. By eliminating the annual mailing, Weston continues its commitment to reducing its carbon footprint, saving tax-payer dollars, and reducing the amount of paper used and tossed away.

Transfer Station/Recycle Only Permit Application Material is Online 

The permit application and other information regarding Household Hazardous Waste Collection Day and the Merriam Street Composting Facility (aka Brush Dump) can be viewed and downloaded at www.weston.org/TransferStation. If you would you prefer to have the permit application mailed to you, please call 781-786-5100 to make the request. 

Fill out the application in full and submit the correct payment, as indicated on the application. Mail to Town Hall, Treasurer/Collector, PO Box 378, Weston, MA 02493 OR utilize the secure drop box outside of Town Hall (next to the double-glass doors). The Town Hall remains closed to the public due to the coronavirus. 

Renew Permits Online

Did you know, you can renew your transfer station permit online? If you have the same vehicle as last year, visit www.weston.org/TSPermits to find the 2020/2021 rates and the online renewal portal. Using an electronic check will not incur any credit card fees. The online renewal option is not available for households wanting a permit for a new vehicle or who have never had a Weston Transfer Station Permit.

First Time Purchase?

If you have never used Weston’s Transfer Station, you should check it out. Weston’s Transfer Station accepts so many items for recycling - from plastics and cardboard, electronics and textiles, scrap wood and old appliances. See www.weston.org/Recycle for the full list of accepted items. If you are just looking for a place to recycle, a Recycle Only permit is available and will gain access to the Transfer Station and the Composting Facility. See www.weston.org/TransferStation for additional information.

Don’t Treat it Like Garbage. Recycle.

Reducing the average tonnage of household solid waste is a priority and the Select Board continues to encourage residents to challenge themselves to reduce their household solid waste by keeping more out of the trash bag.  Refer to www.weston.org/RSW to learn the how, why, and the where.
