In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, the Town is currently unable to process any additional cart requests until further notice.

Place your recycling cart at the curb every other week on the same day as your garbage and yard waste collection.

  • Items accepted for recycling should be placed loose in your brown recycling cart - never bagged.
  • Give bottles, tubs and jars a quick rinse.
