Reminder to Residents

Due to many people working from home during this COVID-19 pandemic, the residential trash collection volume has increased.  The Board of Health would like to remind residents of the following:

  •  there is a 4-bag limit for trash collection

  • Harvey has suspended bulk item collection through May 18th.  This date could change.  This does not include white goods.

  • Simple Recycling has suspended service until further notice

  • The Hopedale Recycle Center is closed until at least May 9th, except for the one-day event for leaves and brush on April 18th.

Residents are asked to have patience and understanding as we all try to navigate the many repercussions of the COVID-19 pandemic.  During this time, and in accordance with Board of Health regulations, residents are required to maintain property in a condition free from garbage and trash.  This means that you cannot place and discard items curbside and assume they will be picked up either by E.L. Harvey or anyone else.  Now is not the time to place items curbside and mark ‘FREE.”  Continue to check the town’s website for updates and feel free to call the Board of Health Office at 508-634-2203 ext. 222.
