Trash & Recycling


Beginning July 1, 2020, CASELLA WASTE SYSTEMS will be the new residential trash and recycle contractor in Wilmington. Trash and recycle procedures and schedules will remain the same.  Please continue to place barrels curbside on your regularly scheduled day. 

To request a bulk item pick up, you may call 1-800-CASELLA (1-800-227-3552) and they will schedule that for you.

Collection stickers for White Goods/CRTs (appliances, televisions, monitors etc.) and Yard Waste punch cards must be purchased through the Town Hall.  White Goods stickers can be purchased through Recreation by calling 978-694-2032.

Once trash and recycling have been collected, residents should pull their barrels off of the street.

Recycling Bylaw Enforcement Begins July 1, 2012

As a reminder, participation in Wilmington's recycling program is mandatory under the Town's current "Recycling By-Law" which is included in the "By-laws of the Inhabitants of the Town of Wilmington, Revised", Chapter 5, Section 2A. The by-law states in part:

"...residents of every household are required to separate recyclable material from the solid waste stream...Failure to separate recyclable material from the solid waste stream may result in failure of the solid waste collection contractor to collect solid waste from the residence which violates this By-Law."
