Guilford/Madison Pilot

Trash Collection

As part of the Co-collection pilot program, all regular household trash should be bagged only in the official Town-issued Orange trash bags before being placed out for collection.

Each participating household in the pilot will be provided with two 15-gallon orange trash bags and one 8-gallon green food scraps bag per week for the length of the pilot program. If after recycling and separating out your food waste, you find that your household needs more than 2 bags per week, you can request additional bags from your hauler.

Place your Orange trash bags and Green Food scraps bag curbside by 7am on your collection day.

Do not place the following items in the Orange town-approved bags:

  • Recyclable plastic, glass, or metal (place in recycling bin)

  • Food scraps (use green bags)

  • Yard waste (bring to drop-off facility: Guilford or Madison

  • Dirt, sod, concrete, or rock

  • Construction/demolition debris

  • Household hazardous waste

  • Hot ashes or flammable materials such as oil, gas, or paint

The Guilford/Madison Transfer Station is for the use of residents and private contractors who collect trash from Guilford and Madison properties. Disposal of Municipal Solid Waste (trash) and Bulky Waste is by weight. Bulky Waste includes demolition debris, construction materials, furniture, etc.
The Transfer Station also accepts electronic waste, scrap metal, mattresses and box springs, appliances, and tires for proper disposal. Learn more here.
