Trash Holiday: Monday, May 30, Memorial Day is a holiday for Paine’s. All trash and recycling pickups will be delayed by one day the week after the holiday.

Out by 6: Please remember that trash and recycling barrels need to be at curbside by 6 a.m. on your scheduled day of pick up. When at the curb your barrels should be at least 2 feet apart to allow for clearance of the automatic arm of the truck.
