The Town of Mansfield operates a recycling park and compost area (the Mansfield Green Recycling Park) that provides a convenient way to recycle materials that are not collected in single-stream recycling bins, white goods, (but not bulky items), and yard waste.
Location: The intersection of Route 106 and East Street.
Hours: Saturdays from 8:00 a.m. to 3:45 p.m., Mondays from 10:00 a.m. to 3:45 p.m., and Tuesday from 8:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. or as otherwise posted.
Note: During the month of November, the compost area is open on Sundays from 8 a.m. to 12 p.m.
Annual Sticker Requirement: The Mansfield Green Recycling Park is open to Mansfield residents whose vehicles have an up-to-date sticker affixed to their vehicle window. To purchase an annual sticker, bring your automobile registration and $20 (effective July 1st, 2018) to the Town Clerk’s office at Town Hall (6 Park Row).
