Pay as You Throw Trash Program

The curbside trash program allows residents to place a maximum of 8 33-gallon sized orange bags at curbside for pickup by the Town's trash collection contractor on a weekly basis. A list of stores selling 15- and 33-gallon orange trash bags appears below.

Orange bags may not exceed 50 pounds in weight, and all bags must be placed at the curb by 7am on the collection day. 

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


Follow Collection Schedule 2017 tab on left for a full year of collection exceptions.


Bags may be purchased at the following locations:

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

Trash not in an orange bag at curbside will not be collected, and the resident will be responsible for its removal.
