The Southbridge municipal trash program will be going through changes in the next 8 months.
Did you know that the CURRENT Curbside Trash and Recycling Collection Program is being paid for through the Landfill Contract? Funding for that Program ends March 31, 2024.
Our vendor will continue to provide curbside trash and recycling services until March 31, 2024.
Beginning on April 1, 2024, Southbridge residents will need to pay for trash disposal, and recycling collection and processing costs.
HOW will we pay this new multi-million-dollar bill?
Town Council recently voted to institute a Flat Fee to fund the program.
Flat Fee – a Flat Fee is paid by property owners based on the number of housing units.
The exact amount is yet to be determined. Housing units up to 6 units will continue to receive curbside trash and recycling collection. Note: Southbridge residents will continue to use the existing curbside trash carts.
Please stay tuned for additional information as we move closer.
