Burlington is partnering with Big Brothers-Big Sisters to collect clothing, textiles, housewares, and more!
These collections divert clothing and housewares out of the landfill. When you donate, you are helping our Town and children across the state.
You can schedule your free home pickup by visiting the BBBS website or calling 508-466-4590.
If you find you have more trash than you are able to fit into your 65 gallon blue trash cart, there are two options available for residents:
Overflow Bags - Orange overflow bags are sold at Burlington grocery stores (Market Basket, Wegmans, and Shaws) and the DPW office. They are sold as 5 bags for $10. These bags should be left outside next to your blue trash cart on collection day.
Additional Trash Cart - Additional trash carts are $150.00 per year and are not prorated. Residents are billed yearly in June for the July 1st through June 30th upcoming year. Please fill out this application and mail it in with a check to the address listed.
Yard Waste runs in the Spring (6 weeks) and the Fall (7 weeks) every year. It also runs the last week of June, July, August, and September. Please refer to the 2021 and 2022 Trash and Recycle Calendar for more information.
Do Not Mix Waste
Yard waste is banned from the trash by State regulations. Do not put leaves or grass clippings in your trash! Please avoid raking or blowing leave or grass clippings into the street, storm drains, streams, or wetlands.
