Trash is collected by automated collection trucks in blue 64-gallon town-supplied trash carts. Residents should place their bagged trash in their cart and place the cart at the curbside by 7 a.m. on collection day (no earlier than 5 p.m. on the day before).
Carts must be 3 feet away from any obstacles, the handle and wheels of the cart must face away from the street, and the cart lid must be closed. Any material that does not fit in the trash cart(s) with the lid closed must be placed in an official Billerica Overflow Bag.
Residents may also pay for the use of an additional cart. If you are interested in purchasing an additional cart, please fill out the Additional Cart Application and return it to the Department of Public Works Administration Office.
