Franklin County, Massachusetts 
Bulky Rigid Plastics 

Plastic items larger than 2.5 gallons are too bulky to be recycled in municipal recycling, but some of them can now be collected separately for recycling at our "Clean Sweep" bulky waste collections. Acceptable items are 5-gallon pails (metal handles OK), plastic lawn furniture, plastic trashcans and recycling bins, laundry baskets,  storage totes, and milk or soda crates. All rigid plastic items must be empty, rinsed if needed, and free of soil, rocks, and liquids.

Unacceptable items for bulky rigid plastic recycling include Styrofoam, PVC pipe/tubing, vinyl siding, fencing, toolboxes, hoses of any kind, pesticide/chemical containers, and plastic films or bags.
