Fees on Some Bulk Items to go into Effect on January 4, 2021

December 4, 2020

Residents disposing of some bulk items and appliances will be required to pay a fee to cover the costs of disposal starting with the January 4, 2021 collection.

The Bedford Select Board approved the fees last March but delayed implementation due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Editor’s Note 12/04/2020: Fees will be announced soon

The fees will apply to appliances with Freon like refrigerators and air conditioners; other appliances like stoves, dryers, and microwaves; small appliances such as microwaves, printers, vacuums, and other electronic waste. Also, large metal items like bicycles, lawnmowers, snowblowers, grills, and exercise equipment will require a fee. The fees for televisions and monitors will be based on the size of the screen.

Residents must call Republic Services Customer Service (800-442-9006) by 5 pm on Friday to schedule a pick-up the following week.

  • Bulk Waste is collected on Mondays.
  • Appliances, televisions/monitors, and electronics are collected on Wednesdays.

Residents will have to provide a credit card number when scheduling a pick-up. This process takes effect for pick-ups on January 4 and thereafter.

There are no fees for other bulk items such as household furniture (home, office, and patio furniture), carpets and rugs (rolled in 4-foot lengths, tied/taped securely), lamps, car seats, suitcases, rigid plastic items, toys, etc.

For any questions, please contact the Department of Public Works at 781-275-7605.
