Where to get rid of Corrugated Cardboard and Styrofoam in Plymouth, MA.

Recycling Cardboard, Week by Week

In our neighborhood you can put out cardboard for recycling if it can fit into the recycling bin, or if you tie it up in 3 foot x 3 foot bundles tied with string, and balanced on the top of the recycle bin.

That's ok if you've got a little bit of recycling to get rid of, but if you've recently moved into a new home, you've got a lot more to recycle, and it would take days and days of cutting the cardboard to the correct size, and weeks and weeks of putting it out on trash day. 

A Better Way

A better way to get rig of large amounts of cardboard is to load up as much as you can in the back of your car/SUV, and bring it to the Manomet Transfer Station. 

Note: Participation in Town-provided Trash & Recycling, and a permit IS required.

Here's how  you get there and get rid of your cardboard once you arrive. 

Lots of cardboard left over from moving. 

Filling the SUV with as much cardboard as we can.

Take Old Sandwich Road to Beaver Dam Road

Take a LEFT onto Beaver Dam Road at the Stop sign.

Turn RIGHT into the Manomet Transfer Station

Drive around inside, past the small office

Then, on your LEFT is the first of
two dumpsters for CARDBOARD

Throw, or carefully place, your cardboard
into the dumpster.

There is no need to push any button

The dumpster has a sensor that knows when
to compact the cardboard to make room for more.

And we are done!
