- Only include bagged household garbage in your cart (such as kitchen scraps and small items).
- Place any of the following items in your garbage cart: recyclables, yard waste, liquids, dirt, masonry, rock, metal, wood, building materials, ashes, loose diapers, loose animal waste, contractor waste, fluorescent light tubes, electronic waste, or hazardous waste.
- Put cardboard out with your garbage. Cardboard is picked up by the Town on your regular recycling day.
