This fall, every household in Longmeadow will receive a new, FREE 35-gallon trash cart! Please continue to check back for more information.
Thirteen years ago, Longmeadow adopted a Waste Reduction Program with goals of decreasing trash, increasing recycling and reducing costs. By limiting the amount of trash collected to 35-gallons each week and charging for excess trash (blue bags), the program provides an incentive to increase waste diversion and recycling, and provides a more equitable system for sharing costs. Households that generate more trash pay more.
Please review the Q&A document below to help answer any questions or concerns you may have. More information will follow as distribution approaches. As always, please call DPW if you have any questions at 413-567-3400.
