Curbside Collection Calendar

Green Community
Household trash is collected weekly.  The household trash limit is the capacity of the green trash cart.  If you have more trash than will fit in that trash cart then you may purchase overflow trash bags at Hopkinton DPW at 66 Fruit Street, Hopkinton Lumber Co. at 118 Main Street, or Price Chopper at 167 West Main Street.

Mattresses and other furniture and bulk items may be disposed of at the curb and collected by EL Harvey, free of charge, with the following requirements:

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

2. You must first call EL Harvey at 800-321-3002 to notify them what you wish to dispose of and they will let you know the procedures to follow.
