There is no limit to how many recyclable items you can set out EVERY week for free, or drop at the transfer station located at 2001 Pipeline Road (upper Pine Street) during normal operating hours. A resident vehicle sticker is mandatory to access the transfer station.

Due to the China-crisis recycling issues, The Town of Manchester is not currently able to separate out and send rigid plastics for recycle. These items; 5 gallon pails, children's outdoor toys, plastic totes, garden chairs etc must now be disposed of curbside entirely contained within an orange trash bag or if too large, by pre-scheduling and pre-paying Waste Management (800-972-4545) for a curbside large item pick-up as green stickers are no longer valid for curbside items (effective 1/1/19). Pre-scheduled large items must be placed curbside alongside your trash and recyclables by 7am on your collection day.
