Curbside Collection Calendar

Green Community
Household trash is collected weekly.  The household trash limit is 2 barrels per week and each barrel may not exceed 39 gallons.  If you have more trash than will fit in those two barrels you may purchase overflow trash bags at either Colella's or Hopkinton Lumber, both on Main Street.

Mattresses can be disposed of at the curb and collected by EL Harvey, free of charge, with the following requirements:

1. You may only dispose of mattresses on your regularly scheduled collection day, and

2. You must first call EL Harvey at 800-321-3002 to notify them that you are disposing of a mattress and on what date.

Recyclables are collected every other week on your regular trash collection day. Place at curb separate from trash by 7 AM. All A WEEKS are collected during weeks highlighted in GREEN on the calendar below and all B WEEKS (see list on right) are collected during weeks highlighted in BLUE.
