Curbside Trash & Recycling

Recycling Carts are Coming

The Department of Public Works is diligently working with Nauset Disposal to help make a smooth transition to this new curbside contractor. Public Works staff is field monitoring and reporting back any and all misses to the new contractor. Thank you for your patience during this transition period.  

New Operator for Curbside Collection of Trash and Recycling begins July 1, 2022

Beginning 07/01/2022, Waste Connections and its subsidiary Nauset Disposal will take over the Falmouth contract for collection of trash and recycling  from Republic Services. Their service center phone number is 508-591-0948 or they can be emailed at

Please visit their Town of Falmouth website at for more information.

Residential Curbside Trash Collection serves most houses, condominiums and apartment buildings with fewer than five units by a weekly curbside trash pickup which is financed by town property taxes. Each residence is permitted up to 3 containers weekly (not to exceed 32 gallon capacity each.) Trucks will collect between the hours of 7 a.m. and 5 p.m. Whenever a scheduled collection day falls on a holiday, that day's collection and all remaining collections for the week will be delayed one day. 

The current Town of Falmouth observed holidays are as follows:

 • New Year's Day

• Patriots Day

• Memorial Day

• Independence Day

• Labor Day

• Columbus Day

• Veterans Day

• Thanksgiving Day

• Christmas

When one of these holidays falls on a normal pick-up day, regular collection will take place the following day and this will continue for the rest of the week, including Saturday. Sign up for email/text alerts & notifications regarding delayed trash pickup or other information in our NotifyMe Center.

When to Recycle

Your recycling day will be your regular rubbish day, but only every other week. Just remember to put your filled bin out next to your regular household rubbish by 7 a.m
