All single-family, 2, 3 and 4-family households are required to
participate in the automated collection program. Properties are
issued a refuse and a recycling cart that must be used for your
weekly trash pickup and bi-weekly recycling pickup. Automated
collection trucks are equipped with specially designed arms that
grasp, lift and empty the Town-issued refuse or recycling
carts. Trash or recyclables outside of the automated
container will not be collected.
Participation in Automated Refuse/Recycling Collection is
mandatory - and easy as 1- 2 - 3:
1: Fill your automated container with only
household trash or recyclables. Please bag your trash before
placing in the container to reduce litter, keep container clean and
prevent spilling. Recyclables do not need to be sorted and
should not be bagged within the cart. To ensure collection,
containers filled with trash may not exceed the weight limits
marked on the lids.
2: Close lid, grasp container handles firmly with
both hands and wheel the cart to the curb or point of collection on
your collection day. Your containers may not be collected if
placed out after 6 a.m. on your collection day.
3: Set your automated cart at the curbside or
point of collection, wheels and handle facing your home. Make
sure your containers are at least 5 feet from any other containers,
parked cars, mailboxes, fences, trees, away from over-head wires or
any other structures so that the automated collection truck can
pick up your containers. After collection, remove your containers
from the street by 6 p.m.
