Weekly Curbside Trash Collection Schedule: Click HereNote: A new collections schedule will be implemented beginning Monday, December 4. Find new schedule on here.

Falmouth has a “Pay-per-bag” trash collection system.  The cost of disposing of trash is covered by the cost of the bags, so you pay only for what you throw away.  The curbside collection service is primarily paid for through property taxes.

Rules and Regulations for Curbside Collection

  • Trash and Recycle bins MUST be placed at the curb by 7:00 am on the scheduled pick-up day.
  • Trash will only be collected if it is in a Falmouth Yellow Trash Bag.
