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.
