  • The Halifax recycling bins, located on the Brook Road old town garage property, are serviced by TAM, Inc., a private contractor. These bins are rotated between towns, and the markings on them vary. Bins marked “CARDBOARD ONLY” are meant for cardboard, newspaper, printer paper, junk mail, cereal/juice/food boxes, magazines, etc., per TAM’s list of materials accepted.
  • As the Town pays for service per load, users should break down boxes, and otherwise make the best use of the space available.
  • The Town also pays additional fees for “contaminants” (non-recyclable items) in either the paper or the glass/plastic/metal bin.
  • Please visit TAM’s web site,, especially the links under the “Recycling” tab at the top of the page, to learn more about correct, efficient, recycling.

Lately, the Selectboard has been getting an increasing number of complaints about yards that contain “junk.”  We are asking all residents to consider some spring cleaning (and we’ve love to compile a list of volunteers, if some neighbors need a helping hand).  See the Selectboard Communications Page for details.
