Have you ever forgotten if it's a recycle week or not? Do you remember which holidays affect the trash/recycling collection schedule? Do you get frustrated when your trash isn't collected on your day and wonder why?
In the coming weeks the East Bridgewater DPW will provide an opportunity for you to download a free app on your phone. The app will allow you to sign up for reminders and alerts regarding trash and recycling. Then you will be able to turn on notifications about your trash collection day, hazardous waste day and any update to the schedule. The app is now live !!

Did you know there are clothing/textile recycling bins at all 3 schools in EB?
Did you also know that recycling clothes and textiles generate money for the PTO? The PTO uses the money collected to fund events/programs at the schools that benefit all the kids. Baystate textiles has partnered with the school department to provide the bins, empty them and pay for what they collect.
Please consider dropping off you used clothing in one of these bins.
