What are the specific regulations concerning garbage containers?

Refuse Containers

All residential units, regardless of type of residential use, will be required to provide "adequate containment" of all refuse and recyclables.

All residential units will be required to use standard 65-gallon or 90-gallon roll-out containers. Those who are physically unable to use 65-gallon or 90-gallon containers can receive authorization to use standard 40-gallon containers for residential refuse. A doctor's note or handicapped parking card is required to receive authorization to use standard 40-gallon containers. These individuals are urged to contact Town Hall for this special authorization.

All residential vacation rental units will be required to use one standard 90-gallon roll-out container per 3 bedrooms.

Recycling Containers

The Town has experienced a significant increase in the volume of recyclables collected over the past few years and has experienced more instances of overflowing recyclables.

The Town discontinued the sale of the 18-gallon open recycling bins in late 2012, and all permanent residents and second homeowners are now required to utilize a minimum of one 40-gallon (or larger) roll-out recycling container. Vacation rental units are now required to utilize a minimum of one 90-gallon roll-out recycling container for every 3 bedrooms in the vacation rental unit.

90-gallon and 40-gallon roll-out recycling containers are available for sale at Sound ACE Hardware.

Acquiring New Containers

The Town does not sell the containers, they should be purchased at Sound ACE Hardware, located in the Emerald Plantation Shopping Center.

You may purchase your container at any store other than Sound ACE Hardware but the container must be compatible with the style of containers pictured in order to be compatible with the truck:
