  • Please have carts curbside by 7 a.m. placed 2 feet apart, with handles facing house.
  • Cart lids must be closed so trucks can operate safely.

  • Only the Town issued carts can be used. No extra bags, boxes or barrels will be picked up.

Curbside Yard Waste

Yard Waste is collected curbside in the Spring and in the Fall with your normal trash/recycling collection.  Only grass, leaves and branches 1" and under are collected curbside and must be placed in open top containers or paper bags.  DO NOT put yard waste in the Town provided trash/recycling carts.
