Who do I call if my trash or recycling is missed?

Call the Board of Health at (978) 630-4023 by the next morning to report a missed pickup.  

Please remember that trash toters, recycle toters and yard waste containers must be placed at the curb for collection no later than 7am on your collection day.  Trash or recycle toters that are overstuffed in any manner will not be emptied. Lids must be completely closed.  If your toter has been reported as overstuffed or open by Waste Management, they are unable to retrieve your toter until your next regular trash day.
