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, all curbside pickup is delayed one day; New Year’s Day, Memorial Day, July 4, Labor Day, Thanksgiving, and Christmas Day.
