Transfer Station and Trash - Sutton Massachusetts
It amuses me vastly that realtors are apparently selling VERY expensive homes on Stone School Road to people without telling them that the transfer station was - until very recently - a dump!! That's not just park land in the transfer station area. That is a large dump that was covered over with sod. I don't mind them covering up the dump, but I do mind realtors deliberately hiding this fact from new home owners.
You can read the History of Sutton's Transfer Station for the whole story of how this happened.
The Sutton transfer station is found down Stone School Road.
Station Hours - Tue through Sat 8am-4pm

How does Sutton's municipal trash and recycling options compare with the surrounding communities? If you go through 3 bags a week, plus the $30 access fee, Sutton is about $180/yr. Plus gas. Plus hassle. Apparently other towns in our area charge LESS money and pick up your trash AT YOUR HOUSE.
