Disposing of your household garbage can be handled one of two ways - taking your trash to a local transfer station or hiring a local solid waste hauler.

Additionally, several towns in the county have a station at which a local trash hauler is set up once or twice a week to receive bags of garbage for a fee. See the link to "Drop-off Centers" for more details about this local garbage service.
Local haulers provide varying levels of solid waste services.
