2022 TORH Trash & Recycle Calendar

After cart is emptied, the cart is to be removed from the curb or street by midnight or be subject to a penalty per the Town’s most current Fee Schedule as adopted by the Town Council.

Effective April 1, 2021, residents should direct garbage and recycling issues directly to Waste Management. This includes missed service as well as cart/lid repairs and replacements. This will help reduce steps and time for residents and our staff. We hope this will allow issues to be reported and taken care of without delay, and ultimately be a better service for residents.

  • Name
  • Address
  • Nature of Request/Complaint
