Curbside yard waste collection in Middletown will resume on May 11, 2020 for the town’s refuse collection program and continue every other week as regularly scheduled through the summer, the town announced today.
Beginning the week of May 11 , the town ask its Pay As You Throw (PAYT) customers to bring all bags, barrels and bundles of yard debris to the curb on the day of their regularly scheduled collection day. Employees of Republic Services will work as efficiently as possible to remove all yard waste without further disruption, but the town does warn that some material may be left behind if a soggy bag breaks or wet leaves get stuck inside the bottom of a container.
During this state of emergency, the Town of Middletown is offering a contactless program where you can purchase the yellow PAYT bags and have them delivered to your home for no additional charge. Two sleeves of the large trash bags may be purchased Monday through Friday, 8:00 AM – 6:00 PM by calling the Middletown Emergency Operations Center at (401) 842-6555 and using your credit card for the purchase. The two sleeves of bags will be delivered to your home the following business day by a town employee.
