Frequently Asked Questions
What do I do with my trash?
There is no trash pick-up provided by the Town of Dover, although weekly pick-up of food waste can be arranged through the Board of Health. The Dover Transfer Station is open to all Dover residents with a Transfer Station sticker. Private trash haulers can also be used.
Where/When can I get a Transfer Station sticker?
Stickers are available in the Town Garage Monday-Friday between 8am and 4pm or you can get them directly at the Transfer Station.
Who has the access to the Dover Transfer Station, where is it and what are the hours?
The Dover Transfer Station is open to all Dover residents (a car sticker is necessary – call Highway Garage or Transfer Station). It is located on Powissett Street and is open Wednesday, Saturday, and Sunday from 8:00am to 3:45pm.
What should I do with food waste?
Food waste is one of the heaviest components of your weekly trash. Since the town pays for incineration by weight, you can help to reduce the town’s disposal costs by removing this item from your trash. In addition, overuse of kitchen disposals can adversely affect the functioning of your septic system. Call the Board of Health at (508) 785-0032 ext.232 to schedule free weekly pickup.
What is the Deposit Trailer?
A trailer at the Transfer Station for deposit cans and bottles. The Recycling Committee assigns a local non-profit organization (garden club, school org., girl scouts) to man the trailer and keep the monthly earnings. This is available to all local non-profit groups. Call Fran Aikman to sign up.
