Garbage/Recycling: Pellitteri Waste Systems Curbside Pick-up

COVID-19 UPDATE: Trash, Recycling, & Extra Pick-up
As of now, the Town has been notified that Pellitteri Waste Systems will continue to pick up trash and recyclables as normal. Please do not approach route drivers; they have been instructed to follow the social distancing guidelines provided by the CDC and maintain 6 feet of separation at all times. Service times may fluctuate. Please make sure to bag your trash securely prior to placing it in your dumpster carts or compactors. (If you bag your recycling, please use clear plastic bags.)

4/27/2020 Update: As of right now, Pellitteri is planning to go ahead with the Spring Extra Pick-up on 6/4 & 6/5. However, they are asking those that are self-quarantining for experiencing COVID-19 symptoms to NOT participate, to protect the workers from picking up items.

Please check back here for further updates or contact Pellitteri directly for alternative disposal options. Contact Pellitteri by calling (608) 257-4285.
