  • Due to the seasonal nature of our community, your pick-up time may vary due to increases / decreases in traffic and the number of customers being serviced in your area.

  • Trash cans must be accessible to drivers. This means snow must be cleared, no cars in the way, etc.

  • Please have trash in garbage bags. The driver may not be able to lift a large barrel of un-bagged trash and loose trash can fly out causing problems with neighbors and the authorities.

E-waste includes computers, cellular phones, TVs, stereos, CD and DVD players, microwaves, electronic items with circuit boards, rechargeable batteries that contain cadmium.

Rubbish BinAnswers to some commonly asked questions:

Why didn't the garbage or recycling truck take my cardboard?
Was it broken down to fit inside the recycling truck? Recycling trucks are not "packers" and cannot crush the material inside. Therefore, you must flatten cardboard boxes and tie them up into 3'x3' bundles. Since cardboard is a mandatory recyclable the garbage packer cannot take it.

Should I put my newspapers in plastic bags?
No. Plastic bags become tangled in the conveyor belts and gears of the equipment that is used to move the recyclable materials through the sorting process, causing delays and equipment damage. Please bundle newspaper with string or place in a paper bag (also recyclable). Don't worry if it is raining and the newspaper gets wet (see 4th question).

Why didn't the recycling truck take my plastic shopping bags?
They are not accepted as recyclable material through your curbside collection service. Plastic shopping bags make good trash bags for small kitchen or bathroom waste cans. Also, most supermarkets provide bins for recycling them. Whether you recycle them or throw them away, please tie a knot in them so they won't fill up with air and blow away, littering roads, tree tops and yards.

Why can't I recycle cardboard soda or beer packaging?
Even though many of these containers are marked as recyclable, they are actually "wet strength" material. This means that it is manufactured to hold together if it gets wet. A key part of the paper and cardboard recycling process is wetting it down to make a mushy pulp. Therefore the majority of recycling mills are not able to process "wet strength" cardboard.
