Please visit the Town of Bedford’s Trash & Recycling website for information about robust waste diversion programs that are available to residents.
The DPW continues to invest in new outreach and education programs and tools such as the Waste Wizard and Collection Calendar and to expand the offerings at the Compost & Recycling Center to help divert valuable material out of the waste stream.
