Curbside Residential trash  

The goal is always to first REDUCE trash, then REUSE materials, and then RECYCLE all that is acceptable in the curbside single stream recycling program.


The 64g trash cart is is for residential HOUSEHOLD trash only, which should not contain any waste ban materials (paper, cardboard, tin and glass containers and recyclable plastics-no yard waste or TV's, computers, any freon appliance, tires, etc... See State Waste Ban page.

Mixed use properties generating business waste must hire their own trash/recycling hauler. Trash should be contained /placed in plastic bags and placed inside the trash cart. Cart lids should be able to close. Do not leave trash on top of cart lid or on the ground.  Move out trash is the responsibility of the property owner.Your compliance is necessary.

If you have an item to big for the trash cart, and it is in reasonable condition, please:

1. Give it away for free at

2. Post it on FaceBook yard sale page

3. Sell it on Ebay, Craigslist or have a yard sale.

4. Donate it to the Women's Community Thrift Store in South Norwood, or Savers on Rt 1 in Norwood.

5. Pay $25 for a curbside pick up.
