The Transfer Station is operated as a "Pay-As-You-Throw" and a Recycle facility. Household waste ("garbage") will be accepted only in Pay-As-You-Throw trash bags ("blue bags"), which can be purchased at the Transfer Station or several local retail stores. These "Blue Bags" cost $20.00 for a package of ten 30-gallon bags or $10.00 for a package of ten 15-gallon bags.
Retailers selling Pay-as-You-Throw trash bags include Scituate Pharmacy, Sand Hills General Store, Hennessy News and the Village Market in the Harbor. Shaws in Cohasset and Roche Brothers in Marshfield also sell Blue Bags.
