The City of Wakefield contracts with Gill Hauling out of Jackson for all residential garbage pick-up. A garbage tote of either 90 gallon or 30 gallon (senior rate) will be provided to each residence. An extra tote can be requested for a fee of $1.75 per month. Only garbage that will fit in the tote will be picked up by the hauler.
Weekly garbage pick-up is on Wednesday. Garbage totes need to be placed at the curb the night before pickup with the lid opening to the street. All totes should be set at the curb four feet away from other totes or parked cars. Curbside recycling totes will also be picked up on Wednesdays. Please place green recycling tote or pink tote next to your garbage for pick-up. Recycling totes will not be picked up if glass or other trash has been placed in the tote.
The City of Wakefield also has a recycling trailer located behind the city shop for residents to place cardboard, plastics and tin. NO GLASS. All items need to be removed from the bag and placed in the appropriate compartment.
