Curbside Collection - Weekly Trash & Bi-Weekly Recycling

The Town of Plainville is contracted with CWPM for automated trash and recycling collection for eligible residential properties.  

What you need to know:

  • The containers should be placed at the curb with the arrows pointing towards the road. There must be no objects within 5 feet of all sides of the container in order for your trash and recycling to be collected. Containers should never be placed side by side.
  • Initially, multi-family homeowners received one recycling and one trash cart. They may obtain additional carts at no cost, up to the number of residential units in their building.
  • You can request an additional barrel for an annual fee. If you would like one, contact the Department of Public Works at (860) 793-0221 ext. 208.

Any questions or comments can be referred to the Department of Public Works at (860)793-0221 ext. 208.
