If residents occasionally have more trash than can fit in the barrels, separate town of Easton trash bags can be set out with the barrels, and they are available in packets of five for $15. They can be purchased at many stores around Easton. For a list of stores, check the Easton residents welcome packet that was sent to all participating households, or go to the townâ€™s Web site at http://www.easton.ma.us.
Waste Management began distributing barrels June 25 and is scheduled to be finished June 30. If any residents do not receive their barrels June 30, they should call Waste Management at 800-972-4545. Trash pickup will be weekly and recycling biweekly; residents can find out what day of the week their trash will be collected by going to the townâ€™s Web site or checking the welcome kit. The town launched the preferred vender program this spring after voters at 2006 special Town Meeting approved a plan to pursue a town-wide program. If you need any other questions answered please feel free to contact us anytime. My best, John Allaire
