Sanitation Fee Changes Coming July 1st

Due to changes in the refuse and recycling market, collection and administrative costs, and inflation for supplies and services, Town costs have increased significantly since the commencement of Brookline’s Hybrid-Pay-As-You-Throw program in 2017. Beginning July 1, 2023, sanitation fees will be increased to support these growing program costs. The updated fees are as follows:

Cart Size

Old Rate

New FY24 Rate

35 Gallon



65 Gallon



95 Gallon



PAYT Overflow Bags

$18.50/Roll of 5 Bags

$20/Roll of 5 Bags

Cart Swap




To minimize base fees for municipal trash service and to support new DEP regulations, the Town will implement a Pay-As-You-Throw fee for Bulky and Special Waste pickups as follows:

  • Special Bulky Item $10/each
  • White Goods & Electronics $20/each
  • Mattresses $55/each

All pickups will need to be scheduled online and paid for in advance. Additional information is available on our website at
