REMINDER: Get Your Overflow Bags For Post-Christmas Trash Collection

WILMINGTON, MA — The holiday season is upon us.  Parties and gift giving can often lead to excess trash.

Below are five reminders about the town’s overflow trash bags, courtesy of the Wilmington DPW:

#1) Overflow bags are the only approved bags for extra trash. Trash not in the official 64-gallon blue containers or in the overflow bags will not be collected.

#2) The bags are sold in packets of 5 for $10.

#3) The bags are available for purchase at:

  • Elia’s Country Store (381 Middlesex Avenue)
  • Lucci’s Market (211 Lowell Street)
  • Market Basket (260 Main Street)
  • Stop & Shop (265 Main Street, North Reading)

#4) Overflow bags are for trash only – no yard waste, no recycles, no construction debris, and no hazardous waste. The bags can hold a maximum weight of about 25 pounds.

#5) Remember to securely close and tie each bag before disposal. Bags must be placed beside your trash container.
