The Sanitation Division services over 10,000 Pay-As-You Throw (PAYT) households weekly with curbside solid waste and recycling pickup. These pickups span the town’s 62 square miles through 220 miles of roadway. Curbside collection includes rubbish, leaves, bulky items, and recyclables. The division also operates a transfer station at 976 Russells Mills Road. The Transfer Station is open to the public three days per week including Saturdays. When the transfer station is not open and when curbside collection is not scheduled (Fridays),
the employees are assigned to public works projects in the highway division.
