Rules of Service
It is recommended that your PAYT bags be placed in a lidded bin. This will help deter rodents, insects, and birds from getting into your trash. Residents may purchase a rubbish barrel at any local hardware store.
Your PAYT bag should be able to close and weigh no more than 20 pounds.
PAYT bags cannot have any item sticking out.
Household trash must be contained inside Shrewsbury Pay As You Throw (PAYT) Blue Bags and set out at the curb by 7:00 A.M. on your scheduled collection day to be eligible for pickup service.
