Garbage & Recycling

The Town with the Big Rock is continuing to roll!

Town Council has approved the implementation of universal recycling (blue cart) and organics (green cart) collection effective October 1st, 2016. Green & blue carts will be delivered to all single-family homes in September.  The blue cart for recycling is picked up weekly on the same day as your black cart collection.  The green cart for organics is also picked up weekly from May to October and then bi-weekly November to April.

Food waste will be accepted in the green cart for collection. Blue carts are for recycling collection. Residents that currently have a blue cart subscription will have no interruption to their pick-up service as they transition from a subscription based program to the universal collection.
