ANNOUNCING THE NEW AUTOMATED PAY-AS-YOU-THROW TRASH COLLECTION PROGRAM
The Town of Seekonk is proud to announce the new Automated Pay-As-You-Throw Trash Collection System. Each residence participating in the Towns' trash program will receive two carts, one for Single Stream Recycling and the other for BLUE BAGS which residents MUST CONTINUE TO USE. Each residence will be mailed a flyer with all of the necessary information.
ABC Disposal will deliver carts beginning September 15, 2014, and will take approximately 5 weeks to complete the entire town. We ask that you begin using the carts immediately upon receipt.
We hope Seekonk residents will enjoy the ease and convenience of the new system. Any questions, please contact the Seekonk Department of Public Works at 508-336-7407.
