Curbside Refuse and Recyclable Pick-up

The town contracts with Paine's, Inc for weekly curbside refuse collection. Recyclable collection is every other week. Please consult the Curbside Collection Schedule for a street-by-street listing. (Bulky items are picked up separately, by request.) Routes start early, barrels should be out by 7 a.m.

The recycling page describes in detail items to put in your recycling barrel.

MIRA’s state-of-the-art single-stream recycling facility will accept a number of items including

  • large toys;
  • beverage crates (excluding black plastic);
  • laundry baskets;
  • recycling bins;
  • telephone directories;
  • storage containers; and
  • hard-cover books.

Any of these items that fit inside the single-stream barrel can be recycled, provided that

  • all metals such as bucket handles and wheel axles are separated from the plastic items;
  • all items are rinsed; and
  • covers from hard-cover books are removed and placed in the trash.
