Due to the Memorial Day Holiday, trash and recycling pick-up will be delayed by one day, all week. Residents with Monday pick-up will have pick-up on Tuesday, May 26, residents who typically have Tuesday pick-up will have pick-up on Wednesday, the 27th, and so on. Friday residents will have pick-up on Saturday, May 30. The Downtown District, however, will have Friday pick-up, as usual.
Looking ahead, Independence Day falls on a Saturday this year, so there will be no delays of trash or recycling pick-ups this year for that holiday.
The trash and recycling dumpsters at the Emergency Operations Center, 59 Low Street, will be removed after 3 p.m. on Friday, May 22. Those dumpsters were in place due to the short-term requirement to have all trash items in a barrel. That requirement expires Tuesday, May 26. If you can, please put cardboard in your recycling cart for automated collection. If not you may resume flattening, bundling, and tying or taping cardboard, and placing it next to your recycle barrel, for collection by Mello Disposal. Also, please keep social distance from Mello staff.
The Municipal Yard Waste Facility on Colby Farm Lane will NOT be affected by the Memorial Day Holiday. It will be open on Saturday, May 23 and Tuesday, May 26, as usual. The Yard Waste Facility is open Tuesday through Saturday, 7:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m.
NEW: This year, stickers may be ordered from the City website, starting at the home page (click on the circle “Online Services”). No stickers will be sold at the Yard Waste site. A Yard Waste sticker gives residents access to the Yard Waste Facility through the first weekend in December.
