Trash should be put out before 6 am on Mondays and Fridays. All residential trash materials must fit inside trash bags made of .9 millimeters (or greater) plastic material, and cannot be larger than 32 gallons. Placing trash in kitchen bags, grocery bags, paper bags, cartons, or boxes is not acceptable, and might result in a code violation. Make sure that all trash is bagged and not left strewn on the sidewalk and in tree pits.
Clear plastic bags are allowed on Beacon Hill for recycling. Clear plastic recycling bags are available at Charles Street Supply. Bags need to be 32 gallons or less. Do not put recyclables in plastic grocery bags. Collapse all boxes. Make sure that all recyclables are bagged or tied together and not left strewn on the sidewalk and in tree pits.
Please encourage your neighbors to do the right thing with their trash. Working together, we can make a difference and contribute to the beautification of our neighborhood. WE CAN DO BETTER!
