The event is open to Bedford residents only. There is a limit of five boxes per car and residents will not be permitted to watch their documents get shredded. Proof of residency is required.

The collection of fluorescent lamps, rechargeable sealed lead-acid batteries, and other items containing mercury is postponed. Residents can continue to drop off these materials in the foyer of the DPW building on Great Road. Moison’s Hardware is another option for properly disposing of fluorescent bulbs.

To avoid traffic backing up on Carlisle Road and Winterberry Way, the DPW is alphabetically staggering the hours by the resident’s last name and is asking for residents to come at the appropriate hour.

“We do not want to have cars lined up on Carlisle Road or Winterberry Way,” said David Manugian, Director of the Public Works. “We are asking for residents to abide by the schedule so we can accommodate everyone.

If cars start lining up on Carlisle Road, we will have to shut the event down.”
