Garbage is collected by the town each Thursday.
We ask that residents restrict the use of burning barrels when possible as this contributes negatively to the environment and air quality of other residents.
Garbage bins in public parks are not to be used for residential waste or disposal of fish cleaning remains.
Recycling is encouraged in our Town as it reduces the amount of waste going into our landfills and the fact that it is cheaper (due to increase in Tipping Fees) for taxpayers to recycle, rather than putting it into the garbage. By not recycling we are throwing money into the garbage.
Guidelines for Recycling:
Blue recycling bags must be used.
Sort recyclables into two types: paper products, and containers.
Cardboard can be placed in a blue bag or broken down and bundled.
Place all paper products in a blue bag (separate from containers).
Ensure all containers are rinsed before placing in blue bag (separate from paper products).
Remove straws, caps and lids from containers
Remove wrap, plastic, and styrofoam from paper and boxes.
