Recycling & Trash

Curbside Collection of Residential Recyclables and Trash

The Town of Brunswick offers free weekly collection of trash and recyclables to all residents. Your collection day is based on your street location. All trash and recycling must be placed curbside by 7:00 a.m. on your collection day. Please do not be fooled into thinking that your collection time is the same each week. It can change at any time based on a number of factors, including weather, traffic, road construction, and truck problems. 


Brunswick's Zero-Sort, or single-stream, curbside recycling program allows residents to mix all recyclable items together in a single bin and leave it curbside. No sorting or use of separate bins is required, everything goes in together! 



Only household trash that is prepared in the town's Pay-As-You-Throw blue bags will be collected. No exceptions. Each resident is limited to a maximum of four (4) 33-gallon trash bags collected per week. 

The Pay-As-You-Throw blue bags come in 15-gallon and 33-gallon sizes and rolls of each can be purchased at:

  • Hannaford - Maine Street, and 49 Topsham Fair Mall Road (Topsham)
  • Hammond Lumber - 18 Spring Street
  • Morning Glory Natural Foods - 60 Maine Street
  • Shaw’s - Merrymeeting Plaza, Bath Road
