Curbside rubbish collection is provided once a week to each residential address with three or fewer family units in town. Changes in schedule (holidays, etc.) will be advertised locally.

All leaves, grass clippings must be brought to the Transfer Station located at 100 Page Street, Saturdays only 8 am to 4 pm. No curbside pickup
