A collection Fee is imposed for commercial establishments requiring collection more than five times per week. These establishments will include Hotels, Motels, Condominiums, Apartment/Multi-Family Complexes and Restaurants.

This fee structure will be in effect from May 12, 2014 through October 13, 2014. The fee is $75 per additional pickup for front-end containers and $20 per additional pick-up for 300-gallon containers.

In most cases the five-day collection schedule would exclude Tuesdays & Thursdays. Other days without collection may be possible if arranged in advance with the Solid Waste Manager. We are not in any way going to sacrifice the cleanliness of the Town. Therefore, the Solid Waste Manager shall have the final say on whether a particular location needs seven-day collection service.

WE DO NOT GO ON PRIVATE PROPERTY. Service operates Monday through Friday from May 1 through September 30. From October 1 through April 30, the service operates on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays. The cost is $20 for the first item, $30 for up to three items and $5 for each additional item. For more information, please call 410-524-0318.
