Overflow Bag Program For Excess Household Trash to Start September 30, 2019
The Town has contracted with WasteZero and Waste Management to provide an option for residents to dispose of excess household trash. Collection of the overflow trash bags will start September 30, 2019.
Residents should place trash into their standard trash cart however trash that does not fit into the cart can be placed in official overflow bag(s) next to the trash cart for collection on your regularly scheduled collection day.
The official Town of Dedham overflow bags are 30 gallon capacity, yellow bags with the Town seal. Only official overflow bags will be collected. Overflow bags are for excess household trash only. Bags will not be collected if they contain recycling, construction debris, or yard waste.
Overflow bags are $2.00/each and are sold in sleeves of five. As of this date, official bags are available for purchase at the following local retailers:
Star Market 795 Providence Highway
Stop & Shop 160 Providence Highway
Terri’s Market 12 Louise Road
7-11 77 Cedar Street
The Town continues to work with additional retailers to add locations where bags will be made available for purchase. Please follow the Department of Public Works website, Facebook and Twitter pages for updates regarding this program.
