Trash Collection

Household trash and broken down cardboard are picked up Monday mornings, unless July 4th, Thanksgiving, Christmas, or New Years Day falls on a Monday.  Household trash must be in plastic bags and placed in covered and secured containers.  Any trash strewn about, or not in closed bags, will not be picked up.  Place containers curbside by 8AM.

In public areas, the blue containers are for bottles and cans, and the trash containers are not for household trash.

Please keep in mind that all Island solid waste has to be hauled to the mainland, a labor intensive and costly process.  We encourage day-trippers to take their trash home with them.
