    • Mondays: Household trash and mixed recyclable items
    • Wednesdays (March 1-December 24): Brush and yard waste
    • Thursdays: Trash only.
    • No pickups will be made on Thanksgiving Day, Christmas Day, or New Year’s Day.
  • Please refrain from putting trash and recyclable items at the curb before dark on the evening before scheduled pickups. Please remove trash containers and any discarded materials that were not collected during the evening of pickup days.  Please do not pile trash outside when the weather forecast calls for an accumulation of two or more inches of snow during the night before pickup.
     
  • Please do not place large items such as appliances, furniture, and mattresses in the common areas unless you have first scheduled a pickup date with Republic Services.  These "special pickups" are usually free of charge for cluster residents.

LOCATIONS: For locations, please check with your immediate neighbors if you are new to the Cluster. There are communal areas in both Upper and Lower Orchard Lane that are equipped with large, shared trash and recycling bins. Please dispose of trash, recycling, and yard waste separately in designated bins.

CONTAINERS: Sturdy plastic trash bins, cardboard cartons and sealable plastic garbage bags are acceptable for household waste and garbage. Paper bags are appropriate for items to be recycled - please do not use plastic bags for recyclables.  Plastic garbage bags, if left out overnight, are susceptible to being opened by animals, resulting in contents strewn on the street. Consider freezing discarded food scraps to minimize aromas that would attract animals. Large sturdy paper bags, such as those available from Home Depot and Costco, are preferred for yard waste. Large plastic bins designated for yard waste are available adjacent to the two-level carport on Upper Orchard Lane.

ACCEPTABLE ITEMS:

  • MONDAYS (all year long)
    • Household trash and garbage, including glass bottles and jars.
  • THURSDAYS (all year long)
    • Household trash and garbage, including glass bottles and jars.
