Town of Southbridge: A Guide to Opting Out of Town Pickup

If you’re a resident of the town of Southbridge, Massachusetts, the new Municipal Curbside Program that came into effect in April 2024 can be confusing. While this service seems compulsory, residents can opt-out to explore alternatives if they don’t feel the trash pickup services being provided fit their needs. In this blog, we’ll go over common questions about this program, how to opt out, and how LeBoeuf Rubbish Removal’s superior service and flexibility mean a better fit for your needs.

Common Questions about Southbridge’s Program

Below are some of the questions we commonly receive about the Municipal Curbside Program coming into effect, important dates, and your options:

  • What is the Municipal Curbside Program? Starting in April 2024, the Town of Southbridge initiated a new system for trash and recycling pickup for all residents utilizing the current town pickup services.
  • What Does it Cost? Southbridge is billing each property at $115.00 per quarter per unit (so a two-family residence would be double. You can look up how many units are registered at an address here).
  • Can I Opt Out of This Program? Yes! While you can’t opt out of the current quarter, you can opt out for the next quarter. You’ll need to do this before the end of the quarter, the 30th of the month prior to billing being done, or the last Friday prior to 30th. You can see the current deadline here.
  • What Are My Alternatives for Waste Management? Thankfully, all rubbish removal companies currently registered with Southbridge can still provide you with service! Contact LeBoeuf before opting out to seamlessly transition to our services (more on that below).
