Garbage Collection

Public Works provides weekly curbside collection of garbage.

Garbage cart is blue; recycling cart is green.

  • All pickups must be curbside by 7:30 am.
  • Garbage is collected weekly in the blue carts
  • If you have more than one rolling cart (the big blue garbage can) or if the location of your kart is near any obstructions, please allow 4 feet on the sides of the kart so that the cart can be picked up without any problems. Our trucks have large arms that reach out to pick up the carts, so please give space so we don't damage your property (i.e. if it is near a fence, your mailbox, or another versa-kart).
  • Please be sure all obstructions are away from the curb on collection day like a portable basketball hoop. If this is on Town of Waterford property it is not the responsibility of the Town, and it needs to be removed.
  • Call the office at 860-444-5864 for the day your street is collected.
  • The Blue carts are for household trash only.
  • These are the areas our trucks are in during the week:
    • Monday through Great Neck area
