The City of Bath contracts with Pine Tree Waste for the curbside collection of trash and recyclables. The City pays for collection of trash of from one to six units only. Apartments, businesses, bed & breakfasts, and homes with more than six units must arrange for private trash service. The curbside collection of recyclables is offered to all residents, regardless of the size of the dwelling. This includes multi-family buildings and bed & breakfasts. Please check the Recycling Page for more information.
Residents of Bath have their trash and recycling collected on the same day of the week according to the following schedule:
Division of Solid Waste & Recycling 2022 Event Calendar
Place trash and recycling at your curb no later than 7:00 AM the day of your collection and no earlier than 6:00 PM the night before. Empty containers must be removed from curbside as soon as practicable. Trash or recycling that has been disturbed by wind or animals is considered litter. It will not be picked up by the contractor and is the responsibility of the occupant.
Bath City Ordinance prohibits residents from bringing their household trash directly to the Landfill. The curbside collection service must be used.
Trash must be set out in official, blue City of Bath Pay-as-you-throw (PAYT) bags or it will not be collected. You may place other bags into your PAYT bags and you may place PAYT bags inside trash cans. PAYT bags are available at several Bath retailers. See the PAYT FAQ for more details.
Up to 4 bags will be collected per week.
Requirements for trash containers:
Recycling must be placed in a blue bin or other sturdy container, and must be loose. The reason for this is that Casella's material recovery center cannot process recycling in bags. For more information about what to include (and what not to include) in your recycling bin, visit the Recycling Page.
