To do so, request and bring a signed Authorization Form from your town's DPW to the collection. Some towns may limit subsidized quantities to 15 gal. or 30 lb.
Visitors from any town without permission may also attend, with a check payable to PSC Environmental for $43/15 gal or 30 lbs of waste. Commercial generators may call ahead to 1-781-879-4435 to arrange disposal and payment.
