Tires
Central Mass Mosquito Control Project (CMMCP) has a tire collection program whereby residents of Shrewsbury can have tires collected and disposed of at no charge during the warm months. Rims must be removed first. This is a seasonal program.

To arrange for collection, residents can email CMMCP directly or call them at 508-393-3055.

Wood
If you have branches, limbs, or stumps, you will have to secure a licensed contractor for the proper removal of wood.

The Town of Shrewsbury is Asian Long-horned Beetle zoned, so the handling of wood must be taken with extreme care. View a list of ALB Licensed Contractors (PDF) who can properly dispose of wood.
