If your trash and recycling gets picked up by the Town, please read the important message below:
Time is running out! The Hybrid Pay-As-You-Throw automated collection program will begin this Spring. All residents who subscribe to the Town’s waste collection service must choose a new black waste cart by March 10th. The carts are available in three (3) sizes, and the size you choose will determine your annual refuse fee.
Beginning on May 30th the DPW will only collect trash from the new black waste carts. Recycling will continue to be collected from the current blue recycling toters. Both the cart and the toter are included in your annual refuse fee. This program replaces the current trash collection program, and the new fee structure will begin on July 1, 2017.
Please visit the DPW’s website at www.brooklinema.gov/hpayt
for answers to frequently asked questions and to select your new black waste cart. Click on the blue Choose Your Cart button to get started. Be sure to have your account number handy, as you will need it to choose your new cart.
Thank you in advance for your assistance in making this new program a success.
