Most items are welcome, but we specialize in clean mendable clothing, lamps, small appliances, computers and other electronics, bikes, toys, jewelry, outdoor power equipment (but not in the winter), and dull blades.

 If your item needs a part and you know what part it is, save time and bring the new part with you.

Enjoy a free drink and a snack, have fun, and work with a volunteer to repair your broken item. You know all about the small print, right? But our small print says the same thing as our big print: There is no charge...really! You just pay for any needed parts.

2019 CERT training class announcement

The Bolton Police Department is pleased to announce that it will be hosting a Community Emergency Response Team (CERT) training course, starting in January of 2019. Eight sessions will be held from 6:00 PM to 9:00 PM on Friday evenings from January 11th to March 1st , 2019. Participants will also be required to conduct an online portion prior to or while attending the course. Classes will be conducted at the Bolton Public Safety Building, in the Harold Brown Jr Memorial Training Room. Classes are free and open to those who live in the Town of Bolton. Participants must be at least 18 years of age.

CERT training is an opportunity for community members to learn about basic disaster preparedness and beyond. Through classroom and hands-on instruction, participants will learn about disaster preparedness, basic response related to fire safety, disaster medical operations and providing basic aid, and light search and rescue. The program will also cover topics such as disaster psychology, terrorism, and the roles of CERT.

When a disaster such as a major winter storm or tornado strikes, emergency responders will be focused on the most critical emergencies. Fortunately, there are many things that residents can do to help themselves, their families, and the community around them, leading up to and following a disaster.

Pre-registration for the CERT course is required and space is limited to approximately 15 students. To register, please download and complete the application, which can be located on the Town of Bolton website, on the Police Department page located here: 


Deadline for submitting applications is Friday, December 28th 2018.

Those interested can also email questions to Lt. Luke Hamburger at Lhamburger@bolton-ma.gov
