Curbside Guidelines

1. Trash is picked up weekly. Recycling is picked up every other week. Trash and recycle carts must be curbside by 7am on your regularly scheduled trash day. Drivers will not go back if you don't have your carts out curbside.

2. Please follow the 3 foot rule when placing your carts curbside. Carts need to be three feet away from everything else. It is your responsibility to space the carts correctly. alt

If you have schedule an oil delivery or another type of service truck will be at your house on your trash/recycling pick up day, please be sure you place your carts where they can be serviced. It is your
responsibility to place carts where drivers can empty them.

3. Carts must be placed at the edge of the roadway with wheels facing away from the street.

4. Please be sure cart lids are closed. Do not overload trash or recycle carts. Overloaded carts are a public safety issue. Do not leave anything outside the cart or on top of the cart.WM drivers reserve the right to refuse to empty your cart(s) if they are overloaded. No reloading carts. If you have left trash on the curb, you must remove it immediately.

PLEASE NOTE: if WM drivers sticker your carts, please understand it is just a means of communication. However, if the driver stickers your carts more than 3x, then the property address is called into DPW dispatch. The property owner will then receive a town non compliance letter. WM drivers have been instructed to not service chronic non compliance properties.

According to town by laws sidewalks must be kept clear for public safety. It is paramount carts be returned to your property (and off the sidewalk) by the end of the day.
