> Town Services > Garbage, Recycling & Organics > Garbage


Garbage is collected weekly year-round in Devon. Each household is limited to the amount of garbage their black waste cart can hold with the lid completely closed.

What is considered garbage?

Items are considered garbage if they can't be:

  • Placed in a blue recycle bag
  • Placed in your green organics cart
  • Disposed of at the Devon Recycling Depot (e.g. household waste, electronics, etc.)

Extra Garbage

Additional garbage outside of a black cart will not be picked up during curbside collection. Instead, extra garbage can be taken to the Devon Recycling Depot and disposed of for a small fee. Large items such as furniture, appliances or other large household items can also be taken to the Devon Recycling Depot or picked up curbside during the Town's spring or fall Large Item Pick Up event.
