Trash Collection


[See also Garbage and Recycling]


Currently, the Town licenses five trash collection providers: Area Disposal, Right Away Disposal (RAD), Republic Waste Services, Scott Waste Services, and Waste Management.  This means there are trash bins out and trucks rolling through neighborhoods six days a week generating noise and dust,  Moreover, the added wear and tear on residential streets reduces the operation l life of the road surface.

There are many options to reduce the negative impacts and improve efficiencies.  The Town could restrict the days of collection, issue a license agreement to one provider to service the entire Town, or divide the Town into districts and bid them separately.  The Mayor and Council have tasked Town staff to develop a range of options and present them at a community conversation in the spring.  

The Town Council held an initial discussion regarding trash collection on March 24, 2016.
