Framingham Curbside Recycling
There is no limit to the amount of recyclables that may be placed at curbside. Recyclables are picked up by a contractor, Waste Management, every other week.
Our neighborhood is scheduled for pick-up on Tuesday’s and recycling occurs every other Tuesday. Please visit the Framingham DPW website at: www.framinghamma.gov/index.aspx?NID=201
