Curbside Waste Collection - A Friendly Reminder!

posted Mar 16, 2017, 7:06 AM by Jolene Bouchard

Carts may be set out for collection the evening or day before, but must be set out by 7:00 a.m. the morning of collection, and should be removed from the town's right-of-way the day of collection.

There are a number of factors that may affect collection times on a route.  Weather, mechanical breakdown, or a different route driver may change the time your trash & recycling are collected on your scheduled day.  Carts need to be at the curbside no later than 7:00 a.m. the day of your scheduled collection.  We appreciate your cooperation.
