Winter Tips for Garbage and Recycle Collection: WINTER TIPS Clearing snow after each snowfall will make it easier to move your cart to its collection point. Clear a place at your collection point so carts sit flat. Carts WILL NOT be collected if placed on a snowbank.

Garbage and Recycling Collection Change

The Town of Merrimac is moving to “One-pass” garbage and recycling collection. Each resident will be delivered one (1) 95-gallon garbage (black lid) and one (1) 95 gallon recycle (yellow lid) toter/container by March 6th, 2023.  Toters are the property of Peterson Sanitation Inc and are to remain at the address they are delivered to. Do NOT use containers until the start date listed below. Garbage or recycle placed out in containers prior to date will not be picked up.

Blue recyle bins do not need to be returned ot Peterson’s Sanitation. If you do not want the blue recycle bin provided by Peterson’s Sanitation, return the cleaned bin to the Town Hall.

The new pickup schedule starts March 6th, 2023. Garbage will be picked up weekly on MONDAY* . Recycles will be picked up on an every other week basis, on MONDAY* (*except for holidays, then pickup will be the next day)
