Town residents are charged a Refuse Fee on the annual tax bill that is sent by Cecil County. This fee covers garbage collection, curbside recycling, yard waste, and bulk trash pick up. Items should be placed curbside no sooner than 24 hours prior to the scheduled pick up. In the event that a regular collection day falls on the following holidays, collection will occur on the following business day: New Years Day, Memorial Day, Independence Day, Labor Day, Thanksgiving Day, Christmas Day.
Garbage collection is every Wednesday. Residents must provide their own returnable garbage receptacle and have it at the curb when the Town’s contractor comes to collect in the morning.
