Please be aware that kitchen garbage and light trash is picked up in the rear of the house twice each week. Garden and yard debris is picked up at the curb. It must be either bagged or tied in bundles. Loose brush and large tree limbs will not be collected. They must be cut into 30-inch lengths and securely bundled. Heavy trash, garden or yard debris in bags exceeding 35 lbs will not be collected.
Curbside trash and bagged debris should be put out after 6:00 pm preceding the pickup day. If refuse containers are used, they must be removed from curbside within 12 hours after pickup.
Latex paint must have lids removed and set aside to dry out. Drying process can be accelerated by adding cat litter or speedy dry. Once dry, cans can be disposed of in household trash. Oil based paints must be recycled at point of purchase or at Household Hazardous Waste Day along with chemicals and pesticides. Visit the Essex County Utilities Authority for dates and lists of acceptable/unacceptable items.
