Curbside GARBAGE Pick-up

The Town uses an outside contractor to collect garbage at the curbside.  We pay for this service based on the weight collected.  To help keep costs down and dispose or waste responsibly, please be sure to review the 4 general rules below.  As well, included here are the pick-up schedule, sticker program parameters and other important information.


Each residence utilizing the Town's curbside collection service shall be entitled to 2 garbage cans / bags per residential unit (not to exceed 30 pounds gross weight each) on each pick-up day without incurring a charge. 


Please place garbage at the curb AFTER 6PM on the eve of your scheduled pick-up.  Garbage placed at the curb prior to 6PM or on no-collection days will result in a warning and possible summons.


Do not place recyclables at the curb on garbage days and visa versa.  It will not be picked up and could result in a warning and summons. 


Additional containers, bags or items that cannot fit in a can or bag that are left at the curbside requires the purchase of a sticker from the Municipal Clerk or from the Public Works Department. Examples of items requiring a sticker include but are not limited to television sets and other larger electronic devises, mattresses and box spring sets, furniture, household goods, appliances, large trash, carpeting and similar materials.
