Single Stream Recycling and Trash Cart Program

The Town of Norwood is under contract with Waste Management (WM) re curbside trash and recycling services.
Every home and apartment unit (up to 6 units maximum) will be or has been provided one 96 gallon recycle cart and one 64 gallon trash cart. The WM carts are to remain on the property they were assigned. Please identify each cart with the number of your street address, and unit # when necessary. Recycling and trash cart lids should be able to close.

When placing trash and recycling carts curbside by 7am on your scheduled pick up day, please follow the 3 Foot Rule, which allows the WM trucks to safely and easily service your curbside carts.

Waste Management drivers monitor the contents of every recycle and trash cart. If there is contamination in the recycle cart, the driver will communicate with you via WM stickers. If non compliance continues, the property will be called in and a town letter will be sent informing you of the non compliance issue. If chronic non compliance continues, the driver will leave your cart behind and/or your carts may be removed from the property.

Program participation and program compliance are both necessary to ensure the sustainability of recycling.

The town will provided a 2nd recycle cart at no charge. Please call town hall at 781.762.1240 for more information.

Broken Cart? Should a problem occur (broken wheel, lid broke) please call Waste Management at 800.972.4545 to request a cart repair or cart replacement at no charge.

Selling your home? Please leave trash and recycle carts (empty and cleaned out) on the property for the new residents. Please leave the empty carts in the garage or in a secure location for the incoming residents.
