Saturdays 9:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m.

There will be staff on hand pointing people in the right direction, but we are asking that you please do not approach the office or any individuals directly in an effort to maintain social distancing.

We apologize for any inconvenience.  If this new plan does not work for you there are many private collection options that exist and if you choose to do that, you can return your 2020 sticker via mail along with your name and address to the Highway Department, 23 Palmer Road, Plympton, MA 02367 before May 1st and we will issue you a refund.
