The Town of Mansfield operates a recycling park and compost area that provides a convenient way to recycle materials that are not collected in single-stream recycling bins, white goods (not bulky items), and yard waste.


The Mansfield Green Recycling Park and Compost Area is at the intersection of Route 106 and East Street, 499 East Street.

Annual Sticker Requirement

To purchase an annual sticker, bring your automobile registration and $20 (effective July 1st, 2018) to the Town Clerk’s office at Town Hall.
