The bins (part of Brookline’s new Single Stream Recycling Program) came with a handy Town of Brookline Recycling & Guidelines Booklet, which featured the standard FAQ.
At the very end was this note:
Getting a free Recycling Bin
Blue recycling bins are available free of charge for residents who subscribe to Town Disposal Service. Bins are available for pick-up from the Department of Public Works, 333 Washington Street, Town Hall, 4th floor during regular business hours. In order to receive a bin, you must show proof of residency at a Brookline household that is on Town Disposal Service.

How do I go about Getting Rid of a free Recycling Bin?
