Sheffield Transfer Station - 304 Barnum Street

Welcome to the redesigned Town of Sheffield Recycle & Solid Waste webpage

Our resource buttons to the left have updated and new information on Town programs and recycling information has been added.  

Several new programs are being added beginning July 1, 2020, including a Bulk Waste bin available every day the Transfer Station is open and Mattresses Recycling bin, available the 1st Sunday of every month. Click on their resource buttons for more information.


The Town of Sheffield is offering 15 home compost bins at a subsidized price of $10 to any Sheffield household for composting food scraps, garden cuttings, lawn clippings, leaves etc. One per household, please. First come, first served, until they are gone.   

The compost bin is a 216 gallon, expandable compost bin by Geobin. It is easy to assemble and has the following features:

Large capacity—expandable to 4 feet (216 gallon)

Easy to assemble with closure keys. Easy to move. Easy to reassemble

Rated 4.4 out of 5 from 868 rating on Amazon

To apply for a bin, email [email protected], Geobin Compost Bin in the subject line. Include your name, physical address and cell or phone number.  We will use the time stamp on emails if there is more demand than availability.  You will be contacted when the compost bin arrives or if you will need to apply for the next round of the compost bin program. Delivery is expected in mid-June. This program was originally scheduled for Earth Day but delayed due to COVID-19. A MassDEP Municipal Recycling Grant is supporting this program.
