City sanitation crews collect garbage in Sturbridge Plantation on Tuesdays and Fridays. Roll-out containers should be placed curbside no later than 7 a.m. on the day of service and removed no later than 7 p.m. that same day. Curbside rubbish/trash pick-up is on Wednesday. The trash should be placed behind the curb and not on the street.
Please do not place grass clippings,boulevard trash, and limbs on the curb prior to Tuesday for Wednesday pickup. Limbs must be cut and only be 4 feet long and about 5 inches wide. If the limbs are larger, the City will not pick them up. Should a tree service cut the limbs, please make arrangements with the service to take the limbs away.
Grass clippings and leaves need to be bagged and placed out for pick up no earlier than Tuesday as well for Wednesday pick up. If your grass is cut prior to Tuesday, the bags of grass need to be held and placed on the curb on Tuesday for Wednesday pickup. If a lawn service cuts, please ask your service to take away the bags of grass. Please do not place bags of grass on the berm that belongs to the Sturbridge apartments.
The City will not pick up trash on the berm. Please do not place any trash, limbs, or trash directly in the street as this becomes a safety issue for cars having to go around the trash in the street. If trash is placed prior to Tuesday on the curb, this makes for a messy looking neighborhood! Thanks for your help.
