TOWNSEND – Begining July 1, 2008 the curbside trash and recycling will be picked up G. W. Shaw & Son, Inc. The trash collection schedule will remain the same. However, G.W. Shaw will be picking up single-stream recycling every other week starting July 8, 2008. Single-stream recycling consists of putting all your recycling (paper, cans, plastics and glass) out at the same time. Trash will continue to be picked up on a weekly basis on the same day as it has been.
Please see the attached schedule. Please direct questions and concerns to Kathleen Spofford, administrative assistant to the Townsend Board of Health, 978-597-1704.
