Excess Recycling & Christmas Tree Collection

Post Date: 12/20/2019 11:39 AM

The week of December 30th (Green) and the week of January 6th (Gold) Waste Management will collect excess recycling on your regular recycling day. For these two weeks only, cardboard, paper and other recyclables will be picked up outside of your carts. Recyclables can be put in open barrels, paper bags or boxes to accommodate the overflow from the holidays. Reminder that Styrofoam and plastic bags are not recyclable in single stream collection.  Any additional container with trash in it will not be picked up. Overflow trash bags are available to purchase at the following locations for excess rubbish. Star Market (795 Providence Highway), Stop and Shop (160 Providence Highway), Terri's Market(12 Louise Road) and 7-11 (77 Cedar Street). The overflow trash bags can be placed next to your trash cart for collection. 

*REMINDER: January 1st is a holiday, and trash/recycling collection will be delayed one day for the remainder of that week. 

Christmas Trees will be collected by the DPW starting the week of December 30th and continuing through the month of January (or until all trees are collected). Trees may not be collected on your regular trash day.  Please place your tree curbside free of tinsel, garland, lights, ornaments and plastic.
