The bins have to be off the street by 7 am the next morning. For black bins, they have to be off the street 7 am on Wednesdays. Blue bins have to be off the street by 7 am on Thursdays.
The new bins hold 65 gallons. It should hold more than the old 3 bag allowance. Do not overfill the bins. The lids have to be closed for the system to work properly.
If you have additional bags you must purchase additional garbage tags from the Town Office and place the tagged bags by the bin.
The depot will still be open, and that is where you will take any branches and grass. You can drop off your branches (under 5 cm in diameter) and grass during normal operating hours.
Unfortunately, no. You can choose to take your recyclables elsewhere, but the bimonthly charge will remain the same.
Make sure all your recyclables are un-bagged. The exceptions are plastic bags and shredded paper. Both must be placed in a clear plastic bag.
