Columbus Day on Monday, Oct. 12 means that trash, recycling and organics collection will start on Thursday, Oct. 15 and run through Saturday, Oct. 17 this week.

If your usual pickup day is Wednesday it will instead be Thursday and pickup will be pushed back by a day for the rest of the week, so usual Thursday pickup will be on Friday and the usual Friday pickup will be on Saturday.

If your trash, organics, and recycling are not picked up, contact Casella Waste Systems, the town’s trash contractor, at 978-548-4427. For any other questions or problems related to trash, recycling and organics, call the Hamilton Department of Public Works at 978-468-5580.
