Toter Related Info
Did your toter get tagged?
If it did, it means that your toters may have been facing the wrong direction, held items that belonged in the other toter, were placed out too early or left out too late. Read the portion of the sticker that has been ‘checked off’ and call us if you have any questions.
Would you prefer a smaller toter?
Consider exchanging them for a smaller set of 32 gallon toters, they are more manageable and have a smaller footprint taking up less space.
Residents are responsible for the proper use and care of trash and recycling toters. In the event of toter loss or damange, replacement toters are made available by the Public Services department at the resident's expense.
Toter replacement costs are:
32 gallon: $35
64 gallon: $45
96 gallon: $75

Community Recycle Bins & Recycling Facility
You may have noticed that the large recycle bins previously located at The Armory on Stroudwater Street are no longer there. Due to the consistent trash dumping occuring at the site, the bins have been relocated to the new Pine Tree Waste facility on County Road.Address: 594 County Road (Route 22)
