Primary providers of solid waste and recycling facilities and services in Taylor County include Waste Management and Veolia.

Current Garbage and Recycling for Residents
The recycling and garbage center is located at N4941 Center Street, behind the Town Shop/Fire Department.
HOURS: Saturdays 9:00 am to 12:00 noon and Tuesdays 5:00 pm to 7:00 pm
The fee for garbage service is $2.00 per container up to 30 gallons and $4.00 for larger containers up to 55 gallons.
When you go to your recycling center, you will be placing all recyclables into one single-sort (plastics #1-7, glass and cardboard) container and all trash into a separate container. Both containers are provided by Waste Management, through which the Town of Westboro currently holds a contract. The recycling dumpsters are open at all times, but disposal of garbage is only allowed during open hours, when an attendant is on duty.
