Additional Information

Since the town "dump" was capped in 1999, it has been replaced by the Waste Management Facility. This is a transfer station, everything that comes there must be sorted and stored for eventual disposal elsewhere. It is important that loads entering the gate be packed to facilitate easy and quick separation. Residential Curbside Trash Collection Most houses, condominiums and apartment buildings with fewer than five units are served by a weekly curbside trash pickup which is financed by town property taxes. Each residence is permitted up to 3 containers weekly (not to exceed 32 gallon capacity each.) Trucks will collect between the hours of 7 a.m. and 4 p.m. Call Town Hall to find the collection day for your street. Whenever a scheduled collection day falls on a holiday, that day's collection and all remaining collections for the week will be delayed one day.
