NEWS at Devens Recycling
Great News For You, Our customers!

After an extensive permitting process, we are pleased to announce that on June 16, 2011, the Devens Enterprise Commission granted DRC a permanent modification to its existing operating license after successfully passing its 6 month trial period for Saturday operating hours. We are now officially open Monday – Friday from 7:00am – 5:00 pm and Saturdays from 7:00 am – 1:00 pm!

Devens Recycling Center accepts MSW (Municipal Solid Waste) and C&D (Construction and Demolition Debris) on Saturdays. All customers wishing to bring material to the facility are required to use the designated truck route which is posted on the Directions page of our website. You our customers now have an disposal site for your Saturday volume.

We encourage you to take advantage of our new extended hours and we kindly remind all our customers to utilize the designated truck route whenever arriving or departing our facility.


Devens Recycling Center Gets MSW Permit
On July 8, 2009, the Massachusetts Department of Environmental Protection granted us a permit modification to our existing operating license. DRC now accepts MSW (Municipal Solid Waste). The modification allows our facility to receive 500 tons of MSW and 1000 tons of C&D (Construction and Demolition) material daily. This is great news for you, our customers!

For those of you who presently haul both waste streams, you no longer need to be concerned with routing different materials to different locations. We can handle it all!


This simple convenience can save you big dollars on payroll, wear and tear on your hauling fleet, not to mention diesel.

Let Us Consolidate Your Loads
Stop trucking MSW farther than you need to. Bringing the material to DRC will allow you to bid municipal contracts more competitively while not having to reduce your margins. There are many advantages our new permit can provide you.

You are already familiar with our facility. And if not, let us highlight just a few points that make us stand out from our competitors:

  • Ease of entry
  • Your drivers do not wait in lines
  • Our large concrete pad turnaround area is swept daily (You won't be getting flat tires here at Devens)
  • Our six 50' bay tipping doors give you plenty of space to tip your load and get back on the road in record time
  • Our friendly, efficient scale house handles all your driver's needs and provides them with accurate reporting for all the material we are entrusted with
  • Our facility was designed with the LEED projects in mind. Construction material flow is tracked from the moment it enters the facility. Customers can access this reporting on their time schedule 24/7 through the customer portal on our website.

    Please call us today to discuss handling all your disposal needs.

Our management staff here at Devens Recycling Center can assist in creating project specific reports for the Construction Waste Management Plan that owners and General Contractors require.

There is no better reason not to become a Devens Recycling Center customer today, so please call us today at 978.772.6500, to discuss handling all your disposal needs.

Recycling Industry Trends
We're A Leader In What's Going On Today!

Knowledge Is Power!
Stay informed on what is going on today in the C&D Recycling Industry will help you be more competitive in today's tough economy.

Recycling C&D Materials is both economical and environmental, but you also need to stay informed in order to remain competitive and fully compliant with all regulations! The CMRA estimates that total C&D Debris generated in the US this year will total 350 Million Tons! By comparison, the most recent estimates of Municipal Solid Waste (MSW) generated in the US in 2006 were 251 Million Tons.


You already know that reuse, recycling, and C&D waste reduction creates jobs, contributes revenue, develops communities and businesses, but did you also know that unlike MSW or Hazardous Waste, C&D Debris is not defined or regulated at the Federal level under the Resource Conservation and Recovery Act (RCRA)? With no minimum Federal requirements or enforcements, C&D Debris Management falls to each individual State, which can vary from State to State.

Devens Recycling Center is committed to staying informed of all EPA, State DEP, and C&D Recycling Industry changes that affect us all! Learn more about what's happening in our Industry by visiting our Learn About Recycling section today!

Compliance Paperwork
Did you know that MassDEP requires that proper notification forms:
Form# BWP AQ 06
Notification of New Building or Demolition
Form# BWP ANF001
Notification of Asbestos Survey) be filed with them by all Building and Demolition Contractors10 days prior to the commencement of a new building and/or demolition project

The only exception to this regulation is for residential projects with less than 20 units.

The purpose of these notifications is to protect our health and environment by preventing the release of dust and other potentially hazardous air pollutants to the air.

We are now requesting a copy of these Notification Forms from you and/or your customer prior to the delivery of your 1st load from a commercial construction or demolition job.

Having copies of these Forms on file at our office, continuing to ask all your drivers for a physical address, and the periodic testing of suspect material from non-documented loads will ensure that Devens Recycling Center and you, our valued customers are in full compliance with all Federal and State regulations regarding the proper handling and disposal of C&D Debris.

Please call us if you have any questions on this new policy and we'll be glad to address any of your concerns. Compliance Paperwork Customer of the Quarter
