The Town of Pembroke is pleased to offer its residents weekly curbside pickup of both trash and single stream recycling. Residents may put out up to 128 gallons of each trash and recycling weekly. The Town has issued each residence a 64 gallon recycle toter and 64 gallon trash toter. If you should require a second toter please contact the Collector's Office at 781-293-2671 to make arrangements (additional fee may apply).

In the event you have an item to dispose of that does not fit in your toter for curbside pickup, please contact EZ Disposal at 855-898-7274 to arrange a bulk item pickup. For more information on bulk item pickups please click here.

The Town of Pembroke implemented curbside, single stream recycling in July of 2011. Each residence in the town was issued a sixty-four (64) gallon, custom Toter with a unique serial number. This number is located on the Toter and on each resident’s municipal user’s fee bill, mailed to them each July and January. This initiative was funded through a grant received by the Town with the balance paid for by the Town. For more information on recycling in Pembroke please click here.
