Plainville Curbside Collection


To receive trash and recyclable materials collection, Plainville residents either subscribe to the municipal collection program or contract with a private hauler. The town does not have a drop-off location for trash or recyclable materials. This website describes the municipal collection program. Information on private haulers may be found in the Yellow Pages under "Rubbish Removal" or see a list of haulers licensed in the Town of Plainville.

Plainville's municipal collection program is a fully user-fee-funded "Pay-as-you-throw" program. There are no tax dollars used to support the program. Subscribers to the program pay only for the services they receive. Residents save money and protect our environment by recycling and reducing the amount of trash that they throw away.
