Trash collections now on Mondays


After a month of consideration, selectmen voted to move the townwide trash and recycling pick-up day from Wednesday to Monday. The change, which began July 1, was based on a request by trash-services vendor Republic Services/Allied Waste; company officials told Town Manager Richard Reed that it would help them better balance their regional pickup schedule. On weeks with a Monday holiday, trash pickup will be on Tuesday. A Republic Services/Allied Waste representative noted that many households generate most of their trash over the weekend, and the change enables residents to get rid of it more quickly.
