Trash and Treasures Weekend
Saturday, October 8, 2022
The Town’s fall Trash and Treasures is scheduled for the weekend of October 8-9. The Town offers this curbside bulk trash collection so that residents can dispose of items that are no longer usable. Please remember to bag, box, or contain all of your discards, and do not put items at the curb before noon on October 7 or after 7 a.m. on October 10. If you have items that can be recycled or repurposed, we encourage you to come to the Lawton Center on October 8 for our Alternatives to Trash & Treasures event (see below).
