Recycling and Garbage

Trash & Recycling Collection

The Town contracts with Advance Disposal for rubbish and recycling collection services. They would like to remind customers of current policies.

~ Garbage and recycling carts should have at least 5 feet of separation between containers, allowing easier pick up of garbage carts.

~ Carts should be set out early morning of the assigned pick up date.

~ Carts must be removed from Town ROW within 24 hours of garbage or recycling pickup.

~ All garbage should be properly bagged.

~ Advance Disposal collects with two separate trucks, one for garbage and another for recyclables.

~ Recyclables: please use the blue-lidded recycling cart to its fullest potential.

~ Do not recycle plastic grocery bags or place recyclables in plastic bags. Doing so jambs the recycling machines and greatly reduces the efficiency of the recycling process.

~When a holiday occurs during the week (Mon thru Fri), all curbside pickup is delayed one day; New Year’s Day, Memorial Day, July 4, Labor Day, Thanksgiving, and Christmas Day. If the Holiday is on the weekend (Sat or Sun), curbside pickup is not delayed one day, it will be on Friday as normal.
