Trash / Recycling

Automated Trash & Recycling Collection

  • Trash will be collected weekly, recycling every other week
  • Trash should be bagged prior to placing it in the 65 gallon cart.  Bagged trash keeps the cart clean and reduces the risk of garbage and debris from being blown away during the collection process
  • Trash cart covers must be closed to be collected.  Any trash in excess of the 65 gallon cart will require the use of a green Town of Agawam official overflow bag.
  • All recycling should be placed loosely in the 95 gallon cart.  No plastic bags please.
