The Solid Waste Division consists of 3 employees who oversee the collection and disposal of Town refuse.  Services include assisting residents deposit trash and recyclables into proper containers; hauling trash and recyclables to disposal sites; manage stockpiles of compost and mulch for residents use; and assist with winter snow plowing.

Southwick continues to promote recycling in order to reduce operating costs and achieve compliance with MassDEP’s goal of reducing our annual solid waste disposal by at least 30% from 2008 to 2020.  The following table summarizes the volume (measured in tons) of recyclables the Town collected in 2014 & 2015:
