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.
TRASH WILL BE PICKED UP TODAY.
COMMUNITY RECYCLING WILL CLOSE AT NOON TODAY.
