Garbage Pickup

–  Place your cart at your front pick-up location by 7:30 am on your collection day.

– Bin must be at least 3 feet from vehicles, or any objects, when placed out or it will not be picked up.  This is to avoid any damage to property.

– All pick ups will be from the front street unless you are otherwise notified.

–  Your collection day will remain on the same weekday unless otherwise informed.

–  Keep litter in its place, bag and tie all your household waste. Small grocery bags do not have to be placed into a standard garbage bag for use with the cart program. Any style of tied bag will do.

–  All your waste must fit in the cart and the lid must close. No additional waste will be collected.

– You are responsible for keeping your cart clean and secure.

– You must return your cart to your property by the end of your collection day.  Returning your cart to your property will help keep your street free of obstruction for maintenance and prevent your cart from being stolen or vandalized.

– Your house and street number is on the cart, there is also a serial number printed on the bin.  This serial number is recorded at the Town Office for identification should the street and house number be removed.

– If loss or damage to your cart is the result of neglect, you will be responsible for the $100 replacement cost of the cart.

Has your cart been damaged or gone missing?
