HOLIDAY TRASH DELAY
Monday, February 20 is Presidents’ Day. Trash & Recycling collection will be delayed one day. Trash collection will be Tuesday through Saturday.
TRASH AND RECYCLING PICKUP SCHEDULES
Just a reminder…. all trash & recycling needs to be placed curbside either the night before, or by 7:00AM. Collection schedules are subject to change due to a variety of reasons such as equipment problems, personnel changes or weather. If you are used to afternoon pickups and do not put the trash out until later in the day, a change could take place wherein your route would be done in the morning. Drivers cannot leave the route they are on to go back and get the trash that…was not missed…but put out late.
Boxes or bags outside your cart can not be collected.
Please, no plastic bags in the recycling cart.
Missed trash or recycling pick-ups, or to schedule a pick-up of appliances, call Sunrise Scavenger – Customer Service 617-361-8000. For appliances, a minimum notice of 2-3 working days is needed. Missed Pickups should be called into Sunrise Scavenger with in 24 hours.
Please donate your clothing, linens, drapes and even shoes, belts and hats, etc.
Textiles make up 6% of the trash collected in Braintree. That means items that are great for recycling or re-using get incinerated. Residents can make a difference…by dropping off textiles at the Town’s Recycling Center any day except Wednesday and Sunday from 7AM-3PM. Also, there are special textile containers at every Braintree school, creating access 7 days a week (during daylight hours).
