Grease, Fats & Oils
Residents are able to properly dispose of their vegetable and animal fats in a 55 gallon drum, which is located next to the compost carts. Western Mass Rendering is the company recycling our fats & grease. This is an excellent way to keep fats and oils out of our septic systems while helping to recycle and create new products such as biofuel. It is important NOT to put any motor or other automotive oil into this container; doing so will cost the town money. If you have some automotive oils to dispose of, please see our helpful transfer station attendants.
