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:
New FY24 Rate
PAYT Overflow Bags
$18.50/Roll of 5 Bags
$20/Roll of 5 Bags
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 www.brooklinema.gov/sanitation.
