CURBSIDE TRASH PICKUP
The Town of Warren provides curbside pickup of trash and recyclables for residential properties containing less than five (5) units. Pickup for properties containing five (5) or more units requires the approval of the Town Council.
In accordance with the Town Code, no person shall deposit solid waste, trash, garbage, rubbish, recyclable materials, brush or yard waste for collection by the Town of Warren on the curbside or adjacent to a public street or way more than twenty-four (24) hours prior to the scheduled time for collection of said solid waste, trash, garbage, rubbish, recyclable materials, brush or yard waste by the town. The trash and recycling pickup schedule is available here: (link to attached document). In the event of a holiday that falls during the work week, trash and recycling pickup will be delayed by one day. Weather events or vehicle breakdowns may also delay collections, and notices will be placed on this website.
Recycling is mandatory and all recyclables must be separated from trash.
Recycling containers are available at DPW for $5. Broken containers may be returned to DPW for free replacement. If there is an overflow, recyclables shall be placed in approved containers stacked close to the special recycling container clearly indicating its similar nature.
