Recycling Program

Recycling Center Entrance The Town of Brunswick supports the recycling concept through operation of the Brunswick Recycling Center, located behind the Town Hall. The entrance is pictured right. The Center accepts recyclable materials free-of-charge and also accepts trash and garbage for nominal fees. The fees charged for disposing of bagged trash and certain other items, along with the sale of recyclable materials brought to the center, fund the recycling Center. Some of the recyclable materials now accepted at the Center include glass bottles and jars, tin food and beverage cans, plastic containers with a number 1, 2 or 3 in the recycling logo, newspapers and magazines, and corrugated cardboard. All materials brought to the Center for recycling must be clean and dry and should be sorted by type.

An informational brochure, including a household recycling guide, is available upon request from the Town Office or Recycling Center.

The Brunswick Recycling Center is open to Town residents Monday through Friday

Hours of Operation are  7:00 a.m. through 3:00 p.m. and Saturdays from 7:00 a.m. through 2:00 p.m. but closed major holidays.
