Our pickup day is Wednesdays - (starting January 4, 2017).

Bags are not required; however the driver is not responsible for picking up items that may blow out as the carts are dumped. All garbage & recyclables must be in the containers; any garbage & recyclables outside of the containers will not be picked up. Garbage pickup is for residential waste and our contract does not include business waste pickup.

Just a few reminders ---- If you choose to keep your garbage cart at the end of your driveway, please move in back a little further for the winter. The Town is not responsible for any damages to the carts that are stored in the road right-of-way.
On pickup day, your cart should be within 18 inches of the curb with the arrows on the lid pointing to the street/curb. To avoid damage to property, place the cart at least three feet away from mailboxes, lamp posts and other fixed objects. Place your cart on as level of a surface as possible, but away from low hanging tree branches. Place recycling carts at least three feet away from garbage carts. Lids should be closed on the carts in order to stop material from spilling or blowing.
