Trash Collection

Trash collection is every Friday morning, please make sure to have all of your trash to the curb no later than 7:00 am.  No trash should be placed out for collection any earlier than Thursday.  Prior to collection day, trash should be stored in containers of metal, plastic or rubber construction and fitted with covers to keep animals out.  No household shall set out more than the equivalent of four 35 gallon trash cans for collection and the weight of any one trash can should not exceed 65 pounds.  Trash collection is for household trash only, other items such as construction debris, appliances, tires, furniture and other large items will be your responsibility for removing from your property.  Some of these larger items may qualify for heavy trash pick up, a service the Town offers twice a year.  Trash collection procedures will change after July 1st, 2020.  See below for details. 

The fee for trash collection is $11.00 per month and is tied to your water bill.  Residential developments that have contracted for a dumpster or businesses that provide a dumpster are not assessed a monthly trash fee.  Trash service is limited to those who live within the town limits.  If you need to remove trash prior to collection day, there is a trash collection station located at Rude’s Hill a few miles north of New Market on Route 11.

**Trash Collection procedures will change beginning Friday, July 3rd, 2020.   In-Town residents will receive a 96-gallon trash tote prior to the first trash collection day.  Residents will roll the tote to the edge of the curb with the front facing the street before 7 a.m. on Fridays.  Residents should return their trash tote to their residence from the curb by noon on Saturdays at the latest.  Residents who wish to request an additional trash tote may do so by clicking the link below to download the form.  Forms should be returned to the Town office in order for a second tote to be delivered to the residence.  The cost for each extra trash tote is $1.00/month.
