GARBAGE PICKUP POLICY
Each household is provided a garbage container. Each container has a serial number and is assigned to a specific address. The container is to remain at this address. If additional cans are desired, they may be purchased at a cost of $65.00 per container. A form is available for purchasing additional containers.
The truck picking up the trash container has an automated arm, which reaches out to pick up the container, empties it, and returns it to its specified location. No other garbage cans can be used with the Town’s garbage truck. Garbage must be inside the 96 gallon container provided by the Town.
