Curbside Residential Trash & Recycling Pickup is provided to properties with one, two, and three dwelling units. Properties with 4 or more dwelling units per lot, and all non-residential uses, must contract directly with a private provider for this service.


As of January 1, 2023, a new automated residential curbside collection contract commences with Casella which includes both trash and recycling collected curbside.

Trash will be collected every week on the scheduled collection day, starting the week of January 2, 2023.

Commercial Dumpsters

Commercial Dumpster required for businesses and multi-family dwelling units

Attention Business Owners and Multi-Family Units (in excess of 3) – In accordance with the Town’s Solid Waste Ordinance you are required to have a commercial dumpster. It has been brought to the Town’s attention that there has been some misuse of our Curbside Collection program and commercial waste is being collected curbside. We have notified our vendor, Casella, that our ordinance does not allow for the collection of commercial waste and we have asked them to educate their drivers not to collect from businesses and multi-family units. If you are a commercial business or you have tenants in a multi-family building (in excess of 3), please comply with the ordinance and avoid a violation. Your cooperation is greatly appreciated.  Solid Waste Ordinance
