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

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

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.
