Why Are Recycling and Trash Carts Stickered?

If your cart has been stickered by a WM driver, please pay attention to what is checked off on the WM sticker. The WM sticker is simply a means of communicating and informing you of what DOES NOT GO IN THE CART. Please understand the driver is doing his job. Also, understand the town is required by the State Department of Environmental Protection to be in compliance with MA State Waste Bans.

For example, please do not place curbside recyclables in a plastic bag, then toss the plastic bag in the recycling cart. If you collect the curbside recyclables in a plastic bag, please empty the contents in the recycling cart and reuse the plastic bag again and again.

Recycle clean, dry, plastic bags and film packaging at your grocery store. Did you know you can collect and recycle newspaper bags, case wrap (bottle water & other beverage plastic wraps and snack plastic wraps), plastic packaging(napkin, paper towels, tissue paper, diaper wrap), dry cleaning bags, air pillows, bread bags, and of course the retail grocery bags.
