Trash/Bulk Trash Collection and Unacceptable Waste


Trash Collection

Refuse removal consists of your daily household trash that is not recyclable. Refuse is collected every Tuesday and Friday. Trash should be placed in Town-provided carts. Please secure lids to prevent littering and attracting wild animals and birds. Residents must bring carts to the curb for pick up before 7 a.m. unless they have already arranged for side-door or back-door service.

PAINT: Water-based paint may be collected with your regular trash if it is in its clearly legible, original container and it has been dried out -- remove lid for at least 72 hours.
