West Boylston Recycles!
West Boylston has adopted a Pay-As-You-Throw trash model which went into effect on July 1,2009. Only trash contained in an Official West Boylston Green Bag will be collected at curb-side. Trash will continue to be collected weekly, along with the weekly curb-side pickup of recycling. The recycling program and the collection schedule will not change. We encourage you to participate in curb-side recycling, which will reduce the number of West Boylston Green Bags that your family will need.
West Boylston Green Bags will be available as of June 12. They will be sold in packages of 10 and are available in two sizes. The following area locations will stock the bags:
Jerry's Hardware - West Boylston Street, Worcester
The monies collected from the sale of the West Boylston Green Bags will be deposited in a revolving fund that will be used to defray trash disposal costs.
Trouble with your Green Bags?
West Boylston Green Bags are supplied by Waste Zero. Residents who have a complaint regarding a defective/faulty trash bag should call the phone number (800-866-3954) printed on the bag to reach Waste Zero's plant in Hemmingway, South Carolina.
You will be asked a couple of questions regarding the nature of the defect and will be asked for the date code printed on each bag. The date code is a 4-digit number which references the date and shift on which the bag was manufactured. Waste Zero will research their quality records for that date code to determine if there is a trend.
The customer service representative will also ask for your name & mailing address and they will mail a replacement for the defective trash bag (s) directly to you by US Postal ground mail.
