Where can I find the most recent Trash & Recycling Calendar?

The current Waste Management Service Calendar may be found here.

For your information, The Town of Shrewsbury provides curbside trash pickup (Pay As You Throw) and curbside recycling collected on a weekly basis - alternating recycling collection of Paper & Cardboard on YELLOW weeks and Plastic, Bottles & Cans on GREY weeks - for all households who participate in the Municipal Trash Collection Program through our contractor, Waste Management. Recycling reduces the amount of trash that must be brought to transfer stations and landfills and directly lowers the cost of trash collection for the town. Recycling is mandatory.

When your scheduled collection day falls on an observed holiday, that day’s collection and all subsequent collections that week will be delayed by one day. Friday’s route will be collected on Saturday. The holidays will be noted in Blue on the calendar.
