Recycling Helpful Hints

CHECK OUT THE RECYCLING AT A GLANCE LINK for the “how to” of recycling.

  • Please do not ever bag your recyclables!  Single stream recycling should be clean and never bagged, it gets tangled around machinery and takes hours to undo.  We thank you for your attention to this
  • Single-stream recycling means that all recyclables may be placed in the Recycling container that has been supplied to you by the Town.
  • Please pack barrels loosely so that the items will easily fall out when tipped to be emptied. (Especially when recycling cardboard and other stiffer items.)
  • Trash is picked up weekly. Recycling is picked up every other week – placed curbside by 7 AM.
  • Please place the recycling separately away from your trash – like the opposite side of the driveway if possible.

If you have any question or concerns you may call TBI at 978-686-2020 or the DPW at 978-685-0950.
