Recycling (Blue Box)


To further enhance Council's commitment to the Environment, Blue Box collection has changed from every two weeks to weekly effective September 2007.  All recycling must be placed at curb before 7 a.m. on collection day.

Blue Boxes will not be emptied if they contain broken glass or any other contaminants.

Purchasing a Blue Box

Blue Boxes can be purchased at Customer Service in the Civic Center. The Town offers 22 gallon Blue Boxes for $10.30 (including taxes and subject to change without notice). Should your Town-issued bin get damaged so badly that you can no longer use it, you can bring back your bin (our logo must be visible) and we will replace it at no charge.
