No Recycling=No Trash Pickup: Part of the New Trash Regulations in Stoneham

Stoneham talks trash.

No Recycling=No Trash Pickup: Part of the New Trash Regulations in Stoneham

Starting on June 30, the town's selectmen impose changes to trash and recycling regulations in Stoneham. 

As of that date, trash collection is limited to 90 gallons per household, and no individual container can be more than 50 pounds. Also, loose trash will not be accepted, and trash cannot overflow the rim of the containers. 

One item per week that is not more than 50 items will be picked up in addition to the 90-pound trash limit. Fees apply. 

Recycling, too, is now weekly, unlimited and mandatory. Bins and containers are collected each week on regular trash day. If your recycling is not put out, your trash won't get picked up. 

Find out complete information here, and also contact information should you have questions about the new policies. 

Resident and Patch reader Bill Previdi provided commentary last week on Stoneham Patch in reaction to a public meeting regarding trash proposals by Hilts and JRM.
