1. Only approved WM carts issued by the town will be serviced. Carts must be placed curbside by 7:00 am on your scheduled pick up day. Carts must also be returned to your property the same day by 9:00 pm.

2. Carts must be placed at the edge of the roadway with wheels facing away from the street. Please follow the 3 foot rule when placing your carts curbside. Carts need to be three feet away from everything. It is your responsibility to space the carts correctly.

3. All trash must be bagged and contained in the cart issued by the town. Do not leave trash on top of the cart lid or on the curb. Cart lid should be able to close. Overloaded trash carts will be stickered and called in. If non compliance continues, overloaded trash carts will not be serviced. The 64 gallon trash cart is for residential trash only. Mixed use properties must hire a private hauler for the business/commercial side of the property.
