Sanitation Collection Reminders

BULK AND METAL COLLECTION

  • SCHEDULE BULK AND METAL PICKUPS HERE
  • Bulk garbage and metal pickups are available by appointment only.  Appointments are scheduled for bulk items on Thursdays or Fridays and metal items on Tuesdays. Collections are limited to 2-3 items. Please be aware that there is a high demand for collection appointments, with limited slots per week. We ask for your patience as we are working to schedule appointments as soon possible.
  • Residents that find they have more than the allowed 2-3 items should seek services of a private carting service or junk removal company. Many of these firms provide opportunities for re-use of your discarded items.
  • When purchasing a large item, such as a mattress, appliance, or furniture, check with your retailer about disposal options for your older item. Residents are encouraged to donate items when possible, try Furniture Sharehouse: https://furnituresharehouse.org/

E-WASTE DISPOSAL

ORGANIC YARD WASTE

  • Organic waste pickup (i.e. leaves, cut up and tied branches, as per the Town Code) continues weekly – no appointment or call necessary. Just place your organic yard waste at the curb in open containers, or bundled and tied – no plastic! Please note:
  • Leaves and grass clippings must be in paper yard waste bags or open, reusable containers. Consider mulching for improved yard care.
  • Branches and twigs must be tied and bundled in small bundles – less than 4 feet long and bundle size total less than 2 feet across. No logs or stumps.
  • The Town does NOT pick up material from private contractors. For example, if you hire a contractor to remove a tree, they are responsible for hauling away the debris.
  • The Town does NOT collect debris from tree removals, or gardeners renovating a property.
  • Christmas trees are picked up with organic yard waste - no appointment or call necessary. Please place your tree to the curb with all lights, ornaments, and decorations removed. The tree should not be in a plastic bag.
