Trash collection and all other solid waste collections shall be made each week on a day or days to be designated from time to time by the Council by resolution with notice published in the Town newsletter or a newspaper of general circulation within the Town.

Bulk trash items such as refrigerators, washers, bundled carpet and padding, water tanks, furniture and similar bulk items shall be collected on one day each week and shall be limited to four pieces per collection and no more than eight pieces per month. These items shall be placed at the front curb. Unacceptable bulk items include: building and construction debris, tires, and automobile parts of any kind. Bulk items may not consist of items resulting from remodeling, renovation or total premises cleanup resulting from evictions or move-outs.
