Plymouth: Trash pickup changes in the works for residents

In Plymouth, Curbside trash pickup begins January 2nd . And, as of that date, the Manomet transfer station will be the only one in use for those residents who chose the transfer station option.

Close to 4800 residents signed on for curbside pickup. Trash containers for those users will be delivered soon, according to DPW Director Jonathan Beder :  “So, right now we’re working with ABC Disposal out of New Bedford to develop routes and pick-ups. The carts will be dropped of at each residential home in early December. We anticipate that will be the first two weeks. Residents will be notified through a press release, through a series of outreach the town will be doing in the next several days.”

The Manomet transfer station is being redesigned to accommodate the increased volume of users: “Right now, the public works staff is renovating the Manomet transfer station. That station will shut down to all users the first two weeks in December so we can complete our repairs. But, South Street and Cedarville will remain open during those times. Cedarville will have expanded hours during those first two weeks in December.”

Both the South Street and Cedarville transfer stations will close at the end of December.
