Recycling is picked up every other week on the same day your trash is picked up. Please refer to the calendar to determine when you have recycle pick up.
Trash and recycling will be picked up on all holidays with the exception of Christmas, in which case it will be picked up the following day.
If you live on a road or shared driveway and have aggregate pickup, you must identify the trash and recycling from your home using stickers. Stickers are available free of charge at the town office.
Recycling bins are available at the town office.
Please note: Trash and recycling need to be put out for pickup before 6:00 a.m. on pick up day. It must be placed curbside at the end of your driveway (or road in some cases) where it can be seen by the driver. If you put your garbage out the night before, be sure to place it in a can with a lid or other appropriate receptacle to prevent animals from getting into it.
