The Town of Shrewsbury will accept basketball hoops, but they must be broken down specifically for waste disposal.

Basketball hoops that need to be disposed of should be done so in the following manner:

  • Disassemble the backboard/hoop, pole (note: pole cannot exceed 4 feet in length) and base
  • Please ensure that the base is empty - no sand or water
  • Place together in a pile so that it's clear to the rubbish hauler that it was 1 unit
  • Adhere a $10 bulky waste sticker to the item (please be sure to complete your information on the sticker)
  • Set out at the curbside on your regular rubbish collection day by 7:00 a.m.
