Special Collection Events

Bedford DPW offers free special collection events in both the Spring and the Fall to help residents to recycle or reuse difficult to manage materials. These events help to keep valuable materials out of the waste stream and lessen the environmental burden of producing virgin materials.


Spring 2024 Special Recycling Event will be held on Saturday May 4 (8:30-1)

Materials to be collected: Electronics & Small Appliances, Propane Tanks and Fire Extinguishers, Styrofoam and Tires. Click here to view the flyer.

New this year: A limited number of Early Drop-off appointments will be available at the Compost & Recycling Center on the first Wednesday of the month, beginning in March 2024.

Must be a Bedford resident. Proof of residency is required. Limit 5 items for early drop-off per household as storage space is limited.
