Solid Waste Operational Changes due to COVID-19 - Suspension of Bulk and Recycling Services

Beginning Monday, March 30in an effort to reduce the risk of solid waste workers’ exposure to COVID-19 and to allow the Town’s trash and recycling vendor, Republic Services, to focus their resources to ensuring there is adequate staffing and equipment to respond to an increased demand in residential trash service, Republic will temporarily suspend pick-up of bulky items and yard waste and recycling services until further notice.
