Automated Trash and Recycling Collection
As of July 1st, the Town converted to automated curbside trash and recycling collection. Carts (at NO COST) are being provided to all households eligible for service. Residents are receiving a blue 96 gallon wheeled cart for recycling and a black 35 gallon wheeled cart for trash (TRASH CARTS HAVE BEEN DELAYED). Residents should continue to use their current trash bins UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE.
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 will be 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 will occur on a bi-weekly schedule on your currently scheduled collection day. All eligible households will be 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. After the initial cart distribution, the Town may provide additional Recycling carts.
Bulky and hard to manage wastes (TVs, mattresses, refrigerators, ACs, furniture, etc.) will be collected by appointment only. Eligible households may utilize this service up to once per month.
A mailing was sent out to all eligible households explaining in detail the program specifics and calendar. If you have not received your wheeled recycling cart, please contact the Department of Public Works at 508-384-5477.
