Rubbish such as worn out furniture, carpet, appliances, bedding, building materials and other items, which are too heavy or bulky for one man to carry, will not be picked up by the Refuse Collection Crew, except during clean-up campaigns. Disposal of these items are the responsibility of the owner.
One garbage collection pickup per week will be provided to each house. On the day of residential collection, the roll-out cart must be placed at the curb by 7:00 a.m. and removed from the curb by midnight that same day. Each house is issued one ninety-gallon roll-out cart for garbage. Additional roll-out carts may be purchased by calling the Public Works Department. The Town will maintain minor maintenance on the roll-out carts, such as wheels and caps. Residents who misuse these receptacles may be liable for the cost of repair. Residents must use the roll-out cart provided by the Town.
Only the green roll-out cart will be dumped. Please bag and tie all trash to be put in the roll-out cart. This helps keep the roll-out cart clean and keeps trash from spilling in the process of being dumped. It is the resident’s responsibility to keep roll-out cart clean. New residents should contact the Public Works Department to assure new garbage collections.
