Effective July 1, 2016 - Automated Trash and Recycling Collection

The Town converted to automated curbside trash and recycling collection. Carts were provided to all households eligible for service. Residents received a blue 96 gallon wheeled cart for recycling and a black 35 gallon wheeled cart for trash.

Due to efficiencies created utilizing automated collection, this will result in an increased level of service and a projected cost savings of over $ 700,000.00.

All trash and recyclables intended for curbside collection must be properly placed in the provided wheeled carts. Trash is collected weekly on your normally scheduled day. Trash intended for collection must be properly placed curbside by 7 AM and placed in the official Town provided black 35 gallon wheeled cart or in the official Pay-As-You-Throw (PAYT) purple bags. Trash placed in any other manner will not be collected.

Recycling collection occurs on a bi-weekly schedule on your currently scheduled collection day. All eligible households are collected during the same week. Recycling intended for collection must be properly placed curbside by 7 AM inside the Town provided blue 96 gallon wheeled cart. Additional wheeled recycling carts may be placed for collection. Additional carts must be the Town's official cart or properly labelled as recycling. If it is not an official Town cart, it must be compatible with the automated collection equipment to receive service. Additional Recycling carts are available for purchase through the Town (call 508-384-5477 for further information).

Bulky and hard to manage wastes (TVs, mattresses, refrigerators, ACs, furniture, etc.) are collected by appointment only. Eligible households may utilize this service up to once per month (call the # above).

All inquiries on the trash/recycling program should be directed to the Department of Public Works at 508-384-5477.
