Pay as You Throw Trash Program

The weekly curbside trash program allows residents to place orange bags curbside for pickup by the Town's trash collection contractor, Waste Management. Orange bags must be placed at the curb by 7:00 am on the collection day. Please place ONLY orange bags at the curbside on the morning of your collection; bags can be placed in a barrel with a lid to prevent animals from tearing open the bags. Orange bags may not exceed 50 pounds in weight. Trash not in an orange bag at curbside will not be collected, and the resident will be responsible for its removal.

If you experience a missed collection of trash or recyclables, please call Waste Management directly at 800-972-4545 to report and reschedule a collection.

Green stickers for large trash items may be purchased from the Town Clerk's office for $5 each. Large items are collected on trash pickup days and are limited to one per household per collection.

View the 2017 Collection Schedule for a full year of collection exceptions.

Residents may also take trash in orange bags to the transfer station on Wednesdays from 7:30am to 3:00pm or Saturdays from 10:00 am to 3:00pm. 

Orange trash bags may be purchased at the following in-town locations:

  • Richdale 
  • Crosby's Market
  • Manchester Hardware
  • Allen's Pharmacy
