Brookline DPW is pleased to announce HPAYT is coming to town in May 2017

HPAYT is a system where customers select a waste cart based on their household’s refuse output. If a customer has more trash than their cart can hold, prepaid, plastic overflow bags, imprinted with the Town seal, will be available for purchase at local retail establishments. This program is successfully utilized, and celebrated, in municipalities across the country.


HPAYT Pricing Structure
Subscribers will continue to receive quarterly bills. Rather than require every subscriber to pay the same flat rate of $200 per year, HPAYT services will be billed based on their choice of three (3) different sizes of waste carts. Subscribers are required to choose at least one cart. 
  • 35 gallon (holds 3 kitchen bags); $190 annually
  • 65 gallon (holds 6 kitchen bags); $252 annually
  • 95 gallon (holds 10 kitchen bags); $312 annually

Choosing a Waste Cart
Subscribers to Town refuse collection must choose a cart by March 10, 2017. 
To select a waste cart, simply click on the blue Choose Your Waste Cart button to the left of your screen. Clicking on the image redirects to a web form. Be sure to have your account number available. You will receive an email confirming your choices.
