If your garbage is scheduled to picked up 

A reminder to residents to have your garbage out by 7:00 AM on your normal collection day. This is to ensure no one is missed, as garbage collection "times of the day" may vary from week to week.

Excess Waste Bags

Residents can continue to purchase Excess Waste Tags for a fee at the Town office. These excess bags of garbage and organic materials must be tagged and placed at your collection point with your carts. Bags must be placed ½ meter away from any collection cart. All organics must be secured in a compostable organics bag for collection when the service is available in the spring of 2018.
