LAWS TAKING EFFECT NOVEMBER 1ST
Starting 11/1/22 textiles (fabric items) and mattress/boxspring items will be considered waste ban items in Massachusetts. This means they cannot be placed out with your normal curbside collection, and they need special disposal arrangements. For more information, please refer to the MassDEP website:
To make sure your carts (barrels) get picked up, follow these rules. Carts must:
be out by 7 am on your service day
be against or at the edge of the curb
at least an arm's length from any vehicle and not behind anything (pole, other cart, etc.)
have closed (sealed) lids
be less than 250 pounds - the trucks have weight limitations on what they can pick up!
If your trash or recycling carts are given rejection stickers, the carts are in violation of one of the above rules or contain items that do not belong in that cart. Please do not report a miss if your carts are in violation of any of the above rules, or have rejection stickers.
