The Town’s residential solid waste contractor, Waste Management, has proposed a change to the waste collection beginning May 1, 2021. After conducting a survey with almost 400 responses, the majority in favor of the new schedule, the modified schedule has been approved. This only affects trash collection, not recycling, which is collected by a separate company.
The Town will now be divided at the Army Corps Field Research Facility Pier, with color coded routes.
Yellow Residential Trash Route: North of the pier
Tuesday & Friday, May 1 – September 30; Tuesdays, October 1 – April 30
Recycling: Every Monday, May 1 – October 31; first & third Mondays November 1 – April 30
Blue Residential Trash Route: South of the pier
Monday & Thursday, May 1 – September 30; Mondays, October 1 – April 30
Recycling: Every Monday, May 1 – October 31; first & third Mondays November 1 to April 30
The company notes that it hopes to provide a better service, leading to fewer missed or late collections. More information, along with can stickers, flyers, and refrigerator clings will be available in the next few weeks.
